Buy Gold and Silver in Carlsbad, CA

Carlsbad is a picturesque seaside town located in California's Pacific Coast. The Village by the Sea, as the locals call it, lies 87 miles south of Los Angeles and 35 miles north of the heart of San Diego. Its first residents were the Luiseno people, who made use of the area's freshwater creeks. European explorers met these native villagers in 1769, but settlement didn't begin until former sailor John Frazier dug a well in the area during the 1880s. Its fresh water and fertile soil helped Carlsbad establish an enviable agricultural industry that specializes in citrus fruits, olives, and avocados.

Today Carlsbad is an affluent city that boasts many top corporate businesses and tourist resorts. Many of the city's residents and even visitors look to boost their financial portfolios at its local coin shops.
