Antique coins are a kind of collectible in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The coins seem to be made of bronze, and they feature a pelican in flight, encircled by a wreath. There are eighteen of them in total, and collecting them all will unlock the Pelicans in Your Pocket achievement. If you do it on the hardest difficulty setting, you’ll need to find even more, but you’ll get the Mad Pelicans trophy. Thanks to their size, they can be a bit hard to find. In this guide, we’re going to show you all Resident Evil 7 Antique Coin locations, to help you get the trophies.
Where to find Antique Coins in RE7: Biohazard
ORIGINAL TEXT: You’ll encounter bird cages at various places in the game. If you offer the pelican coins to these cages, they’ll provide you with weapon upgrades in return. Since ammo is scarce, you should never turn down an opportunity to get more bang for your pelican buck. This makes them valuable even without going for the achievement. There’s only so few of them, which means you won’t be able to upgrade your arsenal much. Still, a few upgrades are better than no upgrades.
There are two trophies related to these coins – one for collecting them on Normal or Easy difficulty, one for getting them on Madhouse. The reason for this is that there are another 15 coins to be collected on the hardest setting. This opens up a lot more possibilities when it comes to upgrading your arsenal (almost double), but the increased difficulty compensates for that.
The coins are often hidden inside containers, like drawers, boxes and chests. You should definitely check everything that looks like a container to see if you can interact with it. When they’re out in the open, you’ll be able to spot them by the light reflecting off their surface.
