Free Flying for 8 Red Coins is a mission in the Shifting Sand Land course in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. In Super Mario 64, the mission is the fifth in the course, though in Super Mario 64 DS, it is the seventh and final mission.

As such, this mission can be completed only with Mario (or someone wearing Mario's cap) in Super Mario 64 DS. Additionally, none of the Red Coins are located within the pyramid. These are the locations of the eight Red Coins:
