- Rob Colborne ★★★★★ a month agoI’ve recently had a number of dealings with The Purple Penny. They’ve all been very positive.
It’s rare to find a coin dealer that is actually forthcoming with their knowledge and open and honest. The people at The Purple Penny have … More always given me their best advice even if it could potentially cost them a sale.
This is tremendously rare in numismatics circles and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by me. They have a vast knowledge of numismatics and a true love of it. I have nothing but positive things to say about them and wish them every success in the future. I will no doubt be back very soon to buy more products from them. ,
- Rashan O'Donnell ★☆☆☆☆ a month agoI can't tell you anything about their service because the man on the phone was not there when I arrived. His wife was there & informed me that she couldn't value my notes because her husband was not there. I felt like she … More was quite rude. I thought it was very bad customer service because I drove all the way from Adelaide city to get some notes valued.
The man there did aggressively told me that they were only open until 4. I arrived at 3.35. He did not say that he wouldn't be there. He was very rude.
In comparison to I.S. Wright in Adelaide Arcade, I walked in with the notes, they were friendly and were able to value the notes within 2 minutes.
I will not be going back to The Purple Penny again. I urge you to do the same.
Response to owner's answer: OK fair enough about having to pick up your kids from school, but it doesn't take much to be friendly which is 50% of good customer service.

I'll be back, again and again.
