Silver Coins are coins that appear during the Silver Coin Challenges in Diddy Kong Racing.

In the original Nintendo 64 release, every course has a Silver Coin Challenge, where the player's objective is to collect eight Silver Coins and win in first place. Many of the Silver Coins are well hidden or located off-track. The player can only participate in a world's Silver Coin Challenges after winning against the world boss in a race, and by having enough Golden Balloons to re-enter the respective courses. After completing a Silver Coin Challenge, the player wins a Golden Balloon.

In Diddy Kong Racing DS, the Silver Coin Challenges are all replaced with Balloon Touch Challenges. As a result, Silver Coins do not appear in the remake.
