Beginning a career in Collector Coinage back in the early 2000's, I was lucky to work for one of the biggest companies in the industry. What did I learn there? Well, besides the basics of modern Australian coinage (plus much more about old Australian coins!), I learnt that collecting coins is an incredibly rewarding hobby. It is all of educational, self-improving, chock full of beauty, and rather satisfying.
Fast forward almost two decades and the opportunity to open my own, small, online collector coin business was sprung upon me. After a short time "ummming" and "aaahing" (and a few beers, it should be said), the decision was made. Yes! I will do it!
And so here we are. Melbourne Coin Company was born. Named after my beloved home town, it is an exciting time for me. And, I hope something that lasts for some years to come.
