History[edit]

Yoshi's Safari[edit]

Big Coins worth 10 coins debuted in Yoshi's Safari. They can be found in Flying ? Blocks within stages, and are worth no points. In this game, they have the imprint of a Super Star.

Wario Land series[edit]

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3[edit]

In Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, 10 Gold Coins look like normal coins, but instead of their usual "1" symbol, the kanji 「十」 (meaning 'ten') is stamped on them. They seldom appear after defeating certain enemies in a specific way and when they are collected, they make a unique noise.

Wario can produce these items from his inventory, which will cost him ten of his already collected coins, by pressing B Button and "up" on the +Control Pad. The coin can then be thrown to defeat enemies. This technique is also necessary to open goal doors and completing the course.

Wario Land II[edit]

10 Gold Coins also appear in Wario Land II. They appear as golden coins with Wario's face stamped on them and they can be quickly distinguished from other coins by their enormous size. Wario's coin counter increases by ten when he picks one up, and they also make a unique sound when they are collected.

In Wario Land II, coins are used to pay minigames in order to find hidden treasures. Contrary to regular coins that can be found just along the road, 10 Gold Coins are usually stored in secret rooms or hardly accessible locations, to make it harder for the player to obtain them.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars[edit]

Coins that are worth ten regular coins appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, along with gold coins and Frog Coins. In this game they look just like regular coins, but are bigger than their normal counterparts. 10 Gold Coins sometimes appear after a larger enemy is bested.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong series[edit]

10 Coins appear as frequent collectables in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, starting with Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. They are referred to as Large Coins throughout the series' electronic manuals and in-game level editors. Aside from their large size, 10 Coins can be distinguished from their smaller counterparts by the stars imprinted on their faces. In Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis, 10 Coins increase the score in a level with 500 points upon being collected, while in subsequent titles, including Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! and Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, they are worth 1000 points instead. Like other items, 10 Coins are picked up by the Minis as they walk.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time[edit]

They also appear in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, but instead they are coins with a 10 on them. They are found in ? Blocks and also in the chasm in Thwomp Caverns. They are slightly bigger than regular coins and they give the player ten coins when collected.

Super Mario series[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. 2[edit]

10 Coins appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2, where they have almost the exact same design as those of Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, though they are roughly twice as big as regular coins. They are one of the prizes found in Roulette Coin Blocks, and are used to distribute 10 coins, 30 coins, and 50 coins.

Super Mario Maker 2[edit]

10-Coins are available as a course element in Super Mario Maker 2. 30-Coin variants are introduced, and 50-Coin variants are also available. This time, 10-Coins are larger than in New Super Mario Bros. 2 and have a similar size to Star Coins.

Yoshi's Crafted World[edit]

10 Coins appear in Yoshi's Crafted World, having the same size as in the Super Mario games compared to regular coins. They depict Yoshi's head on one side (making them resemble Dragon Coins), and the number "10" on the other.
