Day one of the 2017 International Stamp Exhibition proved to be one of the busiest mornings I’ve seen at a trade show in quite some time. From the moment, the doors opened hordes of enthusiasts flocked to the Australia Post pop up shop to secure their Day One souvenir products.
Once everyone began to settle into the show we found that quite a few attendees were very keen to have their collections appraised and some were quite surprised with just how much their little old bread tin filled with old coins was truly worth!
Downies Numismatist, Steve Kirby was run off his feet with a fantastic array of old and new coins being consigned for our upcoming July Auction.
The Gilded 1932 Penny which celebrates the 85th Anniversary of Downies Coins was another unexpected pleasant surprise for our customers who made a purchase today. The only way to secure one of these beautiful coins is by making a purchase at one of the upcoming trade shows. These coins will not be available anywhere else so make sure you drop in and say hello!
