The key with this is to remember that the anonymous user is home-rooted in the /Public folder, so you have to create the folder underneath that directory and leave out the /Public from the path.
E.g. create a folder at /Public/Downloads, put a file called myfile.txt in it, and then download it using the URL https://hostname/Downloads/myfile.txt.  Of course it's also important to set the permissions of this folder such that only download is enabled, otherwise people can potential list, delete and upload stuff, which is very risky.
