|Coins from the Trevi Fountain|
|First appearance||Mario is Missing! (1992)|
The coins from the Trevi Fountain are collectively an item in the NES, SNES and PC releases of Mario is Missing!. They are the various coins that have been thrown into the fountain, which is said to ensure that travelers will return to Rome. The coins are stolen by some Koopa Troopas when they invade the city, causing the fountain to be closed until they are returned. They are then taken from a defeated Koopa Troopa by Luigi, who then shows them to various people within the city. All of them recognize the coins as belonging to the Trevi Fountain. After gathering enough information, Luigi confirms the genuine nature of the coins with the Trevi Fountain's information booth and returns them to their rightful place.
