The land around Roseville was once home to the Nisenan Native American tribe. However, the discovery of gold in the area in 1848 brought throngs of people to try their luck at striking it rich.
Today, Roseville is the largest city in Placer County, and it rests right outside Sacramento. There are many gold and silver dealers in the area that buyers and collectors can choose for their buying and selling needs. Here, we’ll outline a few of the most popular shops in the area.

Baysavers Gold & Silver Coins, Inc.
8548 Madison Ave
Fair Oaks, CA 95628
James McClendon, owner of Baysavers, started collecting coins when he was just a boy. As an adult, James realized that his collection was too big to truly enjoy, so he started selling his coins at the local flea market. After a while, he became so busy that he decided to open his own store. James opened Baysavers in 2001, and it has gone strong ever since then. The store buys and sells old, new, or rare coins; coin supplies and books, mining supplies, silver and gold bullion; and old, new, or broken jewelry.
