About Us

We are two passionate Australian coin collectors. We love Aussie pre-decimal and decimal coins and have a particular interest in errors and mis-strikes. We also own and run The Purple Penny, administer Australia’s Busiest Coin Forum, and try to keep people updated with the latest coin news via our Facebook page.

This website was developed in WordPress by Mark, a WordPress developer from Adelaide. He also developed our nifty mobile coin calculators and the scrap silver and gold calculators you can find in the sidebar of the website. The Australian decimal mintages are also one of his developments, but credit for the actual data that tool displays must go to one of the Blog authors!
