Coins are a global currency in Super Mario Odyssey. You can get them in any kingdom, and spend them on outfits and even Power Moons. It’s because of that latter quality that players are so interested in collecting them – more moons means access to more kingdoms. A method for farming them quickly has surfaced recently, but it’s only available in one of the later stages of the game. Obviously, there are spoilers ahead, so proceed at your own discretion.
The method involves travelling to Bowser’s Kingdom and replaying one of the special mini levels over and over again. If you decide to get rich quick, you’ll have to teleport to the Beneath the Keep checkpoint (the last one). Once you’re there, turn around and follow the roof on the right. Just before you reach the green pipe, jump over the edge and onto the lower rooftop.
Super Mario Odyssey Coin Farming – How to Get Gold Coins Fast
You’ll land next to a flower pot. Cross the Spiny-infested area to get to the seed, then take it back and plant it in the pot. Once it starts growing, jump and hold onto it. It’ll take you high above the clouds, to a secret mini level. The level is all about coins – you’ll just have to run forward and jump from time to time. The rocket flowers will provide you with much needed speed boosts.
You’ll get around 180 coins per run, and once you’re back in Bowser’s Kingdom, the seed will be there again. Simply repeat the process until your coffers are full, then go and buy all the stuff you’ve ever wanted. If you haven’t beaten the game, you’ll have only outfits to purchase. If you’ve already beaten it, you’ll also be able to buy Power Moons, circumventing the need to gather them manually and sucking all the fun out of the game.
