The Australian numismatic community is eagerly anticipating the first of the ANDA’s (Australasian Numismatic Dealer’s Association) regional expos, taking place in Melbourne this February! As a proud member of the ANDA, Downies Collectables is thrilled to announce that they have managed to secure a limited number of the show’s eagerly anticipated special releases for their customers. Read on to find out more…
The ANDA is the professional body representing individuals and businesses dealing in coins and banknotes throughout Australasia. Dedicated to advancing the hobby of coin collecting, educating the public about numismatics, and safeguarding professionalism amongst dealers. Founded in Victoria, it has been guiding and promoting the Australian numismatic community for over 25 years!
Perhaps the most important contribution of the ANDA has been the annual events it spearheads across Australia. The ANDA’s Money Expos are open to the general public for a gold coin donation, and are a great way for coin collectors and dealers to come together to celebrate their passion.
The Melbourne Money Expo 2023 is the first of these annual events and will take place from February 18-19 at the Malvern Town Hall. Events coming up later in the year include the Brisbane Money Expo 2023 at the Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre from May 13-14, and the Perth Money Expo 2023 at the South Perth Community Hall from July 15-16.
No matter which expo you attend, you can expect a thrilling time as leading local and interstate dealers, as well as the general public, gather for a massive two days of buying and selling. It’s the perfect opportunity to find that must-have piece for your collection and network with the specialists. It also promises to be a fantastic day out for the whole family, giving the kids a chance to learn about coin collecting and to get into a new hobby! Whether you are looking to expand your collection, or secure valuations and grading
authentications for your coins and banknotes, there will be a number of experts from across the country ready to assist you.
Importantly, the ANDA Money Expos are also where the association launches exclusive and limited-edition product releases from Australia’s leading mints and institutions, like The Perth Mint and Australia Post! This year, the exclusive releases are particularly special, but if you can’t make it to view these amazing coins and presentations in person, don’t worry, Downies Collectables has secured a limited number of the special releases headlining the expo….
