Finding out if a coin or note is valuable can be stressful - it's hard to be sure whether the information you're looking at is accurate or honest, there is a lot of conflicting information on the internet.

The good news is that once you have access to the right information, you can appraise most coins and notes yourself (not all, but most).

I've published two books on Australian coins; have consulted to both the Perth Mint and the Royal Australian Mint, and am a twice past President of the Australasian Numismatic Dealer's Association (ANDA).
