Mail Order – fast & efficient!
The largest distributor for the Royal Australian Mint and Perth Mint, Downies provides a full mailorder service through our variety of general and specialist publications. Each month, we assemble a wide array of products – all subject to our Bonus Points Rewards Program – with clients able to order by phone, fax, post and via the web.
Retail Outlets – the personal touch
Opened in 1991 and 1994 respectively, Downies retail outlets in Sydney (Town Hall Coins) and Melbourne (Block Arcade Coins) carry an extensive array of items. Bringing the best of collectables to the widest possible audience, Downies ''personal touch'' also extends to our attendance at all major Australian Coin & Banknote Shows.
Australia's oldest Numismatic Auction House
Conducting our first auction in 1963, Downies Australian Coin Auctions is Australia's oldest numismatic auction house. With auctions held at least three times a year, we have the expertise and experience necessary to provide peace of mind to vendors and purchasers alike.
Rare coin & banknote investment service
Whether seeking an elusive piece to complete your collection, or in need of advice on a specialised portfolio or superannuation parcel, Downies rare coin and note specialists can provide you with expertise and service unrivalled in the industry.
At the forefront of the developing relationship between collectables and the Internet, we have established a complete numismatic service via the web. Underpinned by secure online ordering facilities, our website (www.downies.com) includes a vast array of material.
With our unique understanding of the market, Downies has stepped beyond the traditional boundaries of numismatics and, working with some of the world's greatest mints, have played a major role in some of the most recent numismatic breakthroughs.
A global powerhouse
The official representative for many international mints, and also in attendance at major numismatic shows across the globe, we have gone to great lengths to ensure our clients receive the best of world numismatics – as well as carving out a strong niche in the US market through Downies USA.
