Event tokens are special coins that appear during certain events in Mario Kart Tour, starting with the Wild West Tour. They are octagonal green coins with a Super Star design imprinted on them, similar to Star Medals from Super Mario 3D Land and Bonus Medals from Super Mario Run. Up to 99 event tokens can be collected in a single race, and they can never be collected in bonus challenges.
Event tokens can then be used to purchase items from a Token Shop (previously known as Event Shop), which contains items not found in the Daily Selects, such as points-cap tickets and rubies. All items have a limit for how many times they can be purchased. Players can only have as many event tokens as needed to purchase all of the items in the Token Shop, after which they will stop appearing on courses. Unlike other currencies in the game, any unspent event tokens collected in one tour are not carried over to the next.
In Team Rally events, event tokens are replaced by team tokens, which serve the same function, though the player is required to collect as many as possible in order for their selected team to win. The tokens are redesigned to match the team, with the captain's emblem on a white background replacing the Super Star design and the border using a color corresponding to the captain (which is also used in the main tour image). Team tokens only appear in races if the player is using a driver from their team. Though there is no limit to how many team tokens a player can collect in a Team Rally, the token display counter can only show a maximum of five digits, so if the player has 100,000 or more tokens, the display will still read 99,999. During the Mii Tour, team tokens can only be obtained while racing as a Mii.
From the Autumn Tour onwards, an event called Tokens Aplenty was introduced, in which players can obtain once a number of event tokens varying from 50 to 300 by finishing races on all three courses of a randomly selected cup. These events are held every Monday (formerly every Tuesday during the Autumn Tour and the 2021 Halloween Tour). In Team Rallies, the player can only obtain tokens from a course when they use a character on their own team.
Event tokens are obtained via various methods in tours such as hitting opponents with items or collecting them from courses. Event tokens can also be obtained by hitting Jack-o'-lanterns, kadomatsu, and festive trees in specific tours.
