When I want gold or silver, Albany Coin Exchange is the only place that carries the most inventory in town.
Very knowledgeable, polite, and respectful. I really enjoy doing business with this place for buying and selling gold or silver.
I live in Oakland- worth the drive to Albany Coin Exchange. I get respect and full service from the owner and the prices between buy and sell are better than anywhere else I've been.
Nice neighborhood and safe- especially when looking for gold and silver. Albany Coin Exchange is a good place and good price for past 25 years.
Very happy. Excellent people. Very courteous and hope to do more business with you.
It's always nice to see a familiar face and business around since the early 70s, when I moved here as a child. Very helpful!
Service and price – I work for a Fortune 500 investment firm, and have
been sending my clients to Albany Coin for years
to buy gold and silver. Albany Coin has taken very
good care of my clients in both selling the highest
quality gold coins and silver coins/bars, and at a
highly competitive price. I have personally visited other
coin stores and find Albany Coin Exchange to be the
best overall for investors. I absolutely trust them.
Very knowledgeable - very trustworthy - community minded – I have been a customer of Albany coin for many years and can say first off they are a highly trusted shop in the community for precious metals sales and purchase. Their experience spans generations back to the early 70s.
They are a family business and care about the Albany and Berkeley community where they are based. Their shop windows by the front door is always covered with posters for community theater and dance events as well as local festivals and so fourth.
I have seen on occasion a customer inexperienced with precious metals come in the shop with the expectation of getting more money for a family heirloom than they are offered. They are already upset to part with whatever it is. Albany coin kindly told them to check the price at another shop, but they walked away angry. Albany coin did the best they could to be fair and informative with the customer, but the intense complexity of customers emotions given the transaction were not easily soothed.
I must say that Albany coin does a great service in the community. Go in and meet them just to talk. They are very truthful and kind people. A great place to buy and sell precious metals.
Beware of dishonest dealer – I've heard mixed to less than favorable things about this place and thought I'd see how they were. I dropped in with a few pieces of silver coin. The person there offered less for a silver dollar because (her words to me) "they have less silver than two silver half dollars". That is an outright lie, a silver dollar has more silver than two silver half dollars.
I'd give zero stars if I could.
two thumbs down
