About Us

Stuart Andersen is a member of the Australasian Philatelic Traders' Association (APTA) and one of the founders and a former committee member of The Australasian Numismatic Dealer's Association (ANDA).

Stuart established Sherwood Philatelics (later called Sherwood Commemoratives) in 1977, specialising in coins, banknotes and commemorative medals. Sherwood expanded from a retail outlet in Melbourne suburbia to a mail order business with another store in the Melbourne CBD.

In 2001 Sherwood merged with P J Downie Pty Ltd to form Australia's largest numismatic dealership, Downie's Coins Pty Ltd.

In 2008 Stuart retired from Downie's and established his current business trading as Stuart Andersen Pty Ltd, dealing chiefly as wholesalers to the numismatic and philatelic trade but also on the internet.
