Are you asking for money this Christmas?

This is the Christmas present for the hard to buy for… in more ways than one!

With only 6 weeks until Christmas, we are halfway through our 12 weeks of Christmas campaign.

Stuck for what to buy your Grandparents for Christmas? They can be tricky.

Children that have grown out of the toy stage of life can be difficult to get gifts for too. But we have the answer!

Our Coins, Notes and Collectable auctions are some of our most popular and we are constantly seeing people buying hundreds of dollars’ worth at a time!

Soon we will have a new face on the back of Australian coins, whether it be Prince Charles or Prince William. This will cause great interest in our physical dollars again!

Cash use has plummeted in Australia over the last few years which only increases the popularity of coin collecting as people are wanting to collect something that appears to be scarcer.


Unreserved Notes, Coins & Collectables

This is a great auction to start your coin collection from humble beginnings. Cut your teeth by bidding on unreserved coins, banknotes and collectables.

There are incredible opportunities for currency collectors and coin dealers in this auction which may present as bargain purchases but be worth a great deal!

Get the kids into coin collecting as a hobby that can be with them for life. The Royal Australian Mint releases circulating coins that honour our history and important events, like Remembrance Day, or the Commonwealth Games.

These are a good place to start if your kids want to take on coin collecting as a hobby. The limited edition coins are still easy enough to come across in daily life while paying for something at the local store.

Get the kids to put them aside and see how many different ones they can get. Then top up the collection by searching through our UNRESERVED Notes, Coins and Collectables auction.

The feeling of finding the perfect missing piece of a collection is an undeniable joy and satisfaction. Growing the collection can naturally become an obsession, so the more people in on it, the better!


Antiques, Coins, Banknotes & Collectables

When it comes to buying for the hard to buy for grandparents, try something with a touch of sentiment.

Check out our weekly Antiques, Coins, Banknotes & Collectables auction where you might be able to find a coin or antique from the year they were born.

This is a great way to bring back fond memories and something they can hold onto and pass onto generations as an heirloom.

Most people who collect coins are interested in the history these coins carry. By collecting old coins, you can own a small piece of history.

By holding an old coin in your hand, it is possible to imagine where this coin has been and who has used it to buy an array of goods and services.

This auction contains a huge variety of coins, banknotes and stamps dating back to the 1900’s (and even earlier), from all over the world.

Just like your grandparents, these coins would have an incredible number of stories to tell!


Rare Notes & Coins

This auction is an exceptional opportunity to find the ultimate Christmas present that someone can collect, invest and enjoy.

Here you will find a collection of rare coins and notes that feature some of Australia’s most historically significant pieces.

Because so many people have different kinds of collections, there are always people looking to get more coins to fill the gaps in their albums or simply to expand their collection as wide as possible.

All you need is two people needing your coin for their collection and you could have a crazy bidding war on your hands!

So, if you really want to make an amazing impact this Christmas on your coin collector member of the family, then this is the place to be. Make completing their collection a pleasure, rather than a chore.

Seeking out the perfect Christmas coin can be an exciting endeavour. It’s like seeking treasure, you never know what you might stumble upon.

It might be something worth a lot of money or it might be something someone has been searching for over a long period of time.

Whatever it is, it’s the thrill of the hunt is often what drives people to become collectors so watch out!

Shopping for a Christmas present in our Coins, Banknotes and Collectables auctions could start your own addiction.

If you had a dollar for every collectable coin auction we have, then you’d be a rich! Hear all about them by signing up to our email alerts!
