New vision showing two men allegedly impersonating police at a currency exchange shop in Sydney's north-west has emerged after a customer and staff member were forced to the ground before goods were stolen.

Police said the duo entered the shop on the first floor of a building on Rowe Street, Eastwood on March 20 when they told the staff member and customer that there were officers.

Both men left the store and drove away from the scene.

Neither witnesses were injured during the incident.
