Richard E. Fahy established The Right Note advisory service for rare Australian coins and banknotes over 19 years ago in Lane Cove, Sydney and later opened a numismatics investment office in the CBD of Sydney.
He travels all over Australia valuing collections and advising investors. The internet was a boon he quickly embraced allowing him to service Australia wide and even international clients from his Sydney office. Today his website www.TheRightNote.com.au is one of Australia’s largest numismatics websites with a huge range available to browse and buy on-line. It reaches over 5000 visitors a month.
Richard has appeared in many newspaper articles, radio interviews and TV. BBC UK interviewed him about the introduction of Polymer Banknotes. Today Tonight consulted his expert advice regarding fraud with banknotes sold on eBay. He is known as the go to man for advice about Australian money.
His deep knowledge of the history of Australian coins and banknotes is shown in the many articles featured on his website. The history is both interesting and a very important factor in valuations.
His background in accounting ideally positions him to advise investors on how to best manage their portfolios. They can, for example, be used for self-managed superannuation funds. When investors or collectors alike decide to sell their portfolios Richard is able to consult with his network of buyers and also offers sale by consignment on his website.
Numismatics has been one of the best investments available from 2005 – 2014.
