Old Australian Coins


  Buy Old Australian Coins


Australians have a fascination with old Australian coins. Talk to most Australians and they will either have some old Australian coins tucked away. Or they will know a family member, friend or work colleague that has accumulated coins over the years, some of which may have been handed down to them.

Of course not every old Australian coin is rare and has a high value. But that is where Coinworks comes in.


For many there is a sentimental attachment to the coins, particularly if they have come from a loved one. Coins can also be a record of a special moment in time: a fragment of history. And with everyone there is an overwhelming belief that old Australian coins have value and will increase in significance and worth over time.

We are experts in the field of old Australian coins, specialising in pieces from late 18th century until mid-twentieth century.
