Purple Coins are coins found in the games Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They appear when there is a chance of a Purple Comet appearing at any galaxy with a Purple Comet Star. For each of these, the requirement is to collect 100 Purple Coins.
There are two main variations on the Purple Coin Star: the first is the collection of 100 coins of which there are only 100, it can either have or without a time limit. The second is timed, but there are more than 100 of the coins, generally around 150.
Super Mario Galaxy
Purple Coins reappear in Super Mario Galaxy 2 when a Purple Comet orbits a galaxy. Their missions are identical to those from Super Mario Galaxy; 100 Purple Coins must be collected to get a Power Star. Purple Coins are worth 5 gold coins.
- The Regional Coins found in the Mushroom Kingdom of Super Mario Odyssey strongly resemble Purple Coins.
