Berkeley is part of California’s Bay Area and is located on the San Francisco Bay’s eastern shore. It has a population of nearly 113,000 people and is home to the Berkeley branch of the University of California, which is the oldest branch of the university system. The university, and it’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, are major employers and staples of the economy.
Though Berkeley is located near the Hayward Fault, a branch of the San Andreas Fault, it hasn’t suffered any major earthquakes since the 1800s. Let JM Bullion help you locate the right bullion dealer in this city full of culture and history.
