Coins are common collectables found throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. They appear in all levels to guide players and act as little bonuses.


Coins are oval-shaped rimmed yellow coins with a large vertical line imprinted on each face. They're often seen constantly spinning to the right.


Coins usually stay stationary placed in empty spaces, little bonuses, or in a way to lead the player somewhere. They're sometimes seen moving, such as swaying or rotating around a point. When a POW Block is activated, all coins around the player's view will drop, affected by gravity and will despawn if not collected.

When touched by a player or a kicked shell, coins will disappear and contribute to a coin counter on-screen, as well as contribute 200 points each. Whenever the player reaches 100 coins on said counter, an extra life will be rewarded to anyone playing, reviving any player that has run out of lives in multiplayer.

Coins can also be spawned in several different ways. Most enemies will drop one or more coins when defeated by a fireball from a Fire Flower, a rolling barrel, a thrown ice block, or being destroyed after becoming frozen by an iceball from an Ice Flower. Bramballs and Pumpkin Bramballs drop coins when hit from below, and Moneybags drop coins on each hit after disguising as one. Dash Coins create coins in their place whenever passed through by a player or a kicked shell. P Switches temporarily transform all empty Brick Blocks into coins and vice-versa, with all coins becoming empty Brick Blocks.
