A strong retail tradition

Downies has long been a part of the fabric of Australian shopping. Our rich retail heritage stretches back to founder Phil Downie, who opened the Myer Philatelic Bureau in the Myer Melbourne store in 1939.

Both Downies Melbourne and Town Hall Coins and Collectables, our exclusive agent in NSW, provide a huge range of products from both Australia and all over the world, making each store a fantastic, one-stop numismatic destination.
