Our Story

From the latest modern Australian releases to genuine ancient Roman coins used for transactions thousands of years ago, we have a passion for numismatics and love sharing in that with our customers.

Our store is not exclusively focused on high end items, we sell coins from around of the world for as little as 20c in our bargain box which have proven to be a hit with both casual tourists and even young children who get to learn a little more about the history of Australian coinage.

For clients looking to diversify into the coins, banknotes and collectables area we also offer tailored collections to suit an array of interests and needs.

If you are considering the prospect of putting together a portfolio of coins and banknotes, we are here to help you every step of the way with professional and confidential expert advice.
