Australian Coin Auctions

Downies Australian Coin Auctions is the longest established coin and banknote auctioneers in Australia. Conducting our first auction in 1963, we have all the expertise and experience necessary to provide peace of mind to anyone seeking to consign part of all of their collection. Purchasers and vendors are brought together at Downies Auctions from three to five times a year.

Whether buyer or seller, it is nice to have the security of dealing with the leaders in the field. Our status as Australia’s foremost auction house received a ringing endorsement in 2005, when we were chosen to host the most important sale in the history of Australia’s central banking authority – the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). Overseeing the sale of the final group of coins held as part of an RBA stockpile accumulated from the 1920s to the 1970s, Downies Auction of the Gold Coins of the RBA formed the highest profile sale of its kind in Australian numismatic history. An astounding success, all 2,472 lots were sold, with A$4.9m in sales against estimates of A$3m. Subsequently Downie’s secured the rights to offer for sale current Polymer Australia notes on behalf of The Reserve Bank of Autralia via auction and retail sales.
