I hotfooted it straight around the corner to the Commonwealth Bank and picked up 2 new coin Armaguard bags with Aboriginal and purple coins mixed about 25% purple coin. Pushed my luck a bit further and walked to another branch but no luck at all there.

Well done Mate Good

Does that make you a "PurpleTwoDollarHunter" instead now?

I hunt all things purple. This coin is very cool and it's a bonus that it's purple. It has everyone talking and has my kids interested and that's all we want to spark new collecting interests.

Saw my first one in Qld today. Was at the bank (NAB at Coolum) and heard the teller mention the purple $2 to a customer 2 in front of me so I asked when I got up there and they said they did have a few bags. Two tellers pulled 1 bag each out and they were full of new 2013 $2 coins but one only had 1 purple coin in it and the other had about 4 so I asked for the second. All other 2013 coins were the standard.

No problems, the teller then tore the bag open, poured the coins over the counter and slid them over the counter as she counted them with her fingers all over them. So I then asked for the unopened bag with 1 coin in it instead.DodgyDodgy

Managed to also get another bag that had 2 purples in it.

We really need a concerted effort to educate them I reckon. I always ask them not to flick notes, for example.

If tellers become too aware of what coins and notes to look out for then you may notice that your supply dries up pretty quick. Im always careful to tell them just enough without empowering them.

Most bank tellers don't get paid enough to hoard money, I know I was one for years, the only thing that kept me in the job was looking for money

I have some of these that have been pulled out of security bags and they are already showing signs of rogue paint. Some of the purple stripes are chipped and under loupe you can see the paint flecks loose in the 2x2.
