Fuchsia and orange-rimmed Coin Flowers in World 1-6 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Coin Flowers are interactable background objects in the New Super Mario Bros. games. They are typically found on grassy surfaces and mushroom platforms, and appear with multiple colors and designs. When the player performs a spinning motion near a Coin Flower, either through a Spin Jump or through propeller-enabled flight, its flowerhead rotates around the stem; if the player spins close enough to the flower, it additionally releases a coin. Coin Flowers pulsate to the vocal riffs of a level's music.

History[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. Wii[edit]

Coin Flowers first appear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, being widespread in World 1, World 5, and World 7. In Worlds 1 and 7, the petals on a Coin Flower have an outer rim that can be light-blue, orange, or fuchsia, with the inner part of a petal being a very light shade of its rim's color, and the flower's disc is always yellow. In World 5, Coin Flowers have turquoise, violet, or magenta petals with a single light-colored spot at the outer end of each petal; each petal color corresponds to yellow-, blue-, or lime-colored discs, respectively.

In World 1 and World 5 of New Super Mario Bros. 2, there are background flowers that have the same appearance as the Coin Flowers encountered in World 1 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. However, these flowers are not interactable.

New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U[edit]

In New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, Coin Flowers mainly appear in Acorn Plains, Soda Jungle, and Meringue Clouds. In New Super Mario Bros. U, some Coin Flowers also appear in the levels Tropical Refresher and Skyward Stalk of Sparkling Waters, while in New Super Luigi U, they are present in Beanstalk Jungle in the same world, as well as Mount Fuzzy in Rock-Candy Mines. The Coin Flowers in Acorn Plains, Sparkling Waters, and Rock-Candy Mines have blue, yellow, or red petals, with the color transitioning into white towards the inner part of a petal. The flowers in Meringue Clouds also feature this gradient scheme, but appear in indigo, pink, or fuchsia. In Soda Jungle, Coin Flowers reuse their color palettes from World 5 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and have a notch at the tip of each petal.
