The Rareware Coin is a silver coin with the Rareware logo on it in Donkey Kong 64. To obtain this item, the player must play Jetpac from Cranky's Lab and earn at least 5,000 points. This causes the coin to appear within the Jetpac game, though shortly after the Rareware Coin drops, it quickly disappears and then reappears elsewhere on the screen.

Both the Rareware Coin and the Nintendo Coin are required for opening a door in Hideout Helm with the final Boss Key for K. Lumsy's cage.

An unrelated coin showing the Rare logo appears in Diddy Kong Racing DS.
