Hidden Coins (also known as Dash Coins) are special types of coins that have been seen in the New Super Mario Bros. games, Yoshi's New Island, Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Run, and Super Mario Odyssey. Hidden Coins are somewhat rare, and only appear in a few levels.
Hidden Coins first appear as an outline of a Coin; if Mario or another character passes through the outline, it will then turn into a regular coin after a moment. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii and New Super Mario Bros. U, the coins appear with a quieter sound effect once passed through.
In Super Mario 3D World, Hidden Coins are not outlined, though they still act the same as in prior games. They can briefly be revealed by a Ground Pound, or by touching the Wii U GamePad screen or blowing into its microphone, like Hidden Blocks.
In Super Mario Run, Hidden Coins make their first appearance in Ghost-Door Deception. This time, they appear more commonly than in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Touching one can reveal a regular Coin, a Pink Coin, a Purple Coin, or a Black Coin, depending on the level.
In Super Mario Odyssey, Hidden Coins return, working as they do in Super Mario 3D World. They are often placed in areas that are hard to get to without using the Cap Throw.
