This is a request to Australian CCF members! I am going to a family reunion in New Zealand over Christmas and the New Year. Prior to this I shall be flying to Sydney and then taking a 7-night cruise to Hobart, Burnie and Melbourne. I'd be interested in any recommendations for coin shops in Sydney and Melbourne. I don't want to spend a vast amount of money, but would love to find a place where I can rummage in junk bins for pre-decimal coins and maybe buy a few more recent commemoratives and mint sets.

Most dealer will have mint set and their premium are not much different from each other (i dont think they can really fleece you when you can check online what the price maybe). However there knowledge base is definitely different.

Oh and one more thing keep the receipts so you can claim GST back at the airport. Since I'm guess you are taking them back with you.
