Stamp, Coin and Banknote Valuation Day

Morpeth Antique Centre is hosting a Stamp, Coin & Banknote Valuation Day at St James Anglican Church Hall from 10am–3.30pm on Sunday, March 28.

Dealers will be both buying and selling, with trading tables set up featuring Australian stamps, coins and banknotes for sale, valuation guides for both hobbies and accessories in which to keep your collection.

If you have been wondering whether that tin of old coins hidden at the back of the sock draw has any value other than the sentimental kind, bring them along to Morpeth, where four coin and banknote experts will be on-site to take a look at your hoard, along with members from the Newcastle Philatelic Society to value and talk all things stamps.

Previous coin & banknote valuation days at Morpeth revealed a pre-decimal ‘Rainbow Pound’ banknote, which was valued at over $10,000 and thirty gold sovereigns with a current retail value of around $1,000 each. Twenty four of the sovereigns were discovered by the owner hidden in a bag of wool she purchased from a local op shop for $3. Check your bags of yarn, people!

Doors will be open from 10am until 3.30pm at St James Anglican Church Hall (Corner of Tank and High Streets on Sunday, 28 March. Entry & Valuations are free. For more information, contact Kylie Richards at Morpeth Antique Centre on 4933 1407 or email
