Craft the World Wiki

Sometimes you'll find coins, which can be used to buy rare and necessary items in the dwarves' store.

Type Raw material

Coin[1] is a currency that allows you to buy items in the shop.

Acquiring[ | ]

It's not possible to sell things at the shop.

Mining Blocks[ | ]

Coins can be found randomly while mining, as an additional possible drop from every natural block, i.e., blocks placed by dwarfs have no chance of dropping coins when dug.

Tricky Toki Statue[ | ]

The Tricky Toki Statue Tricky Toki Statue may increase the chances of getting coins when mining.

When placed inside or outside the shelter, it increases the chances of finding coins. Monsters cannot destroy statues.

Differently from Gunnar Ironfist or Rorry Stoneskin statues, the bonus from Tricky Toki does stack, but with disminishing amounts; i.e., there is a benefit of placing more than one Tricky Toki, but this benefit is smaller the more statues are placed.

Achievements[ | ]

There are two Steam achievements related to coins.

The first is easy to get and requires no focused effort; playing the game casually, the player will find the 200 coins sooner or later.

The second, about the mercenaries, can only be accomplished in the Underground Biome and requires some hours playing the game focusing on this objective. The player will have to dig around 60% of all blocks (back and foreground) of the map, in order to get enough coins to pay for mercenaries.


Spend 200 gold coins.
