MONTY'S PAWNBROKERS HAS A RICH HISTORY DATING BACK TO 1856
Monty's was originally established on George Street in Sydney under the name N.S.W Monte De Piete, the French translation of the term pawnbroker; a place where advances are given against items at a fair price. Monty's has been proudly serving the Australian community ever since and opened in Brisbane in the early 1900's. We have since become an icon in Fortitude Valley and have resided in our current location, the old English, Scottish & Australian bank building for over 50 years. In this time we have become experts in assessing, buying and selling fine jewellery, antiques, collectables, art, watches and so much more.
Today Monty's is run by a passionate team and have expanded to offer in house jewellery services such as repairs and custom designs as well as upcycling old jewellery to create one of a kind pieces for sale. We continue to stay true to our heritage by offering the Brisbane community fair and competitive loans against items. In 2019 we expanded into the online space with the creation of our online store and we are working to constantly add interesting items to our catalogue.

This Sunday Times newspaper advertisement announced Monty's new branches in Newcastle, Melbourne and the Brisbane store that we now call home. This was placed sometime around 1900.
