Downies Senior Numismatist, Alex Pallent, who specialises in rare coins and banknotes

Downies was thrilled to recently welcome Senior Numismatist Alex Pallent back to the team! With a broad knowledge of numismatics and particular expertise in rare coins and banknotes, Alex can help elevate your collection to the next level. In case you haven't had a chance to speak to him yet, we've asked him to introduce himself below.

My name is Alex Pallent and I recently joined Downies in the role of Senior Numismatist.

I've been lucky to work in the field of numismatics for well over a decade. I started my career at a leading auction house in Mayfair, London. It was there that I first met Ken Downie - back in 2006!

After making the journey over the pond to be with my Australian partner, I joined Downies and worked in the Block Arcade location for almost 7 years. I was then invited to join another Melbourne based company dealing in numismatics, jewelry, collectables, and bullion, but recently was delighted to re-join the Downies team!

If there is ever anything of interest, or any questions relating to a particular coin, please do not hesitate to contact me – I'm here to help.

Kind regards,
