|First appearance||Super Mario 3D Land (2011)|
|Latest appearance||Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury (2021)|
|Effect||Gives the player multiple coins|
Coin rings, or Gold Rings, are ring-shaped objects that first appear in Super Mario 3D Land. They resemble Red Rings but with a yellow color, and they give the player five regular coins when passed through. They are frequently found in underwater courses.
Gold Rings also appear in Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. This time, they give the player three coins instead of five. They are most commonly found in courses involving Plessie.
Coin rings reappear in Super Mario Odyssey, acting as they did in Super Mario 3D World.

- Walsh, Doug, and Joe Epstein. Super Mario Odyssey Prima Official Guide. Page 21. "Single coins go directly into Mario’s pocket. Multi-coin blocks can cough up to ten coins. Coin rolls also grant ten coins. Passing through a coin ring is worth three coins. The outlines of Regional Coins you’ve already retrieved are worth two coins; the outlines of retrieved Power Moons are worth five. With full health, picking up hearts grants five coins too. With coin piles, well, it all depends on the size of the pile!"
