About Us

Our genesis, drive, and vision.

The story of Roxbury’s Auction House is an evolutionary tale that began with a couple of sales experts in 1985. Founded by Bob and Jacquie Innes, Roxbury’s has forged a reputation as one of the most professional, service-driven and reliable Australian auction houses in the industry, ensuring the most seamless consignment journey and the greatest results under the hammer.

Still Queensland’s premier collectable and numismatic auction house, Roxbury’s, is now part of the Imperial Group. With the continued guidance of Bob and Jacquie, Roxbury’s market presence has been reinforced by its partnership with Imperial Group, enabling our expansion of online capabilities and extension of services offered.

With over 35 years of running in-room and now online auctions, Roxbury’s empowers vendors to connect with a global audience to realise the true market value of their collection.

With the introduction of corporate partnerships for professional grading and independent valuation services into the auction landscape, Roxbury’s will be the first and only Australian auction house to offer Professional Coin Grading System (PCGS) and Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) grading when consigning your collections to auction – helping you to connect with the right audience and maximise your returns.

Our team is devoted to empowering our community of collectors with the confidence to buy, sell and consign in a worldwide market. 35 years. 100+ auctions. Outstanding results, every time.
