very rude

Posted Saturday hours were 1 - 4 PM. Arriving early, I returned a bit after 1 PM. I asked to see half cents (my speciality) and was told by the owner ""I threw that junk away"". His tone was serious and did not offer to show me anything. I then asked for some coin supplies, explaining I was also a Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselor and got no response. I was then told by Mr. Foster that he had to go make a Xerox copy of... view more

Great Store. Nowhere Better.

Mr. Foster is an expert not only on coins and stamp but on the economic state of the world, and is always willing to have a great conversation about such issues. His prices are extremely competitive when it comes to both buying and selling, his selection is abundant, and he has a wealth of knowledge about anything you would need in his store. Also, ask him about his book Fiat Paper Money, which details the rise... view more

The man at the coin shop.

I strongly suggest before you enter this store, that if you intend on selling or getting appraisal do the following. 1. Do a little bit of research on your item 2. Document and even photograph your item as proof of your ownership 3. Consider Ebay or anything before this place When I entered this store I had several UNCIRCULATED $1 & $2 from 1930-1960. One of them was a mint Hawaii dollar from 1935, already had ... view more

Nice atmosphere. Good deals to be had.

Went down to Foster's Coin in Berkeley to spend an afternoon on my coin collection. Found a good selection and good prices for Morgan silver dollars, foreign coins, and stamps. The owner is friendly and conversant in numismatics.

A Great Coin Shop for Stamps too

This is my kind of store, a place to hang out and talk to the very knowlegable owner about the complex economic issues of our day. Things are a bit of a 'mess' stamps and coins all over the place but a visual feast. The owner,Mr Foster does not suffer fools easily but I like that. A person who doesnt stand for foolishness and wimps. He, after you get to know him is a great guy. This is a great place to take your kid.... view more

Courteous and Professional. Competitive prices.

My colleagues recommended Berkeley Coin as a place to sell my collection. \r I called ahead and received friendly, professional service.\r \r Prices were the best in the area. I had no trouble selling my extensive collection, and received payment the same day. The owner is well-versed in all areas of the hobby. Store has a wide selection of coins, stamps, and accessories.\r \r I also enjoyed reading Fiat P... view more

Great prices and fast service. Instant liquidity.

Great place to sell the old coins lying around the house. Service was prompt and no-nonsense. The owner is a little rough around the edges, but competitive when it comes to prices. Will work with you. The shop itself is a delightful blend of coins, stamps, flags, and even a few books. The location is convenient to Bart and Shattuck Avenue. Would definitely recommend.

What a rip off!

This guy is a real piece of work. He rips of college students who dont know the true value of what they have and thats what has kept his buisness going. While this may not be illegal, morally it is repugnant. I have never left there with a good feeling and he shows little interest in folks who come in off the street. I will no longer patronize his buisness.
