The silver coin

Coins are the in-game currency of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. They are used for buying Sticker Packs at the Sticker Shop, as well as buying abilities and customizations from Rux. Various actions in the middle of the round give coins to the player and coins are also given to the teams at the end of the round depending on how many actions the player did. Coins can also be purchased with real money.

Coin-based items and their value

These items appear when players accomplish certain actions such as opening chests, damaging and destroying Treasure Yetis and Marigolds, vanquishing Champions, etc.

Players collect them by simply going near them. They automatically convert into the coin currency when collected.

  • Gold Coin = 10
  • Money bag = 50
  • Diamond = 250


Doing these certain actions can yield coins as well:

  • In pre-release videos, some coin amounts were different than the final version (such as Building Teleporter or getting an Assist).
  • In Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, most of the actions give experience points instead of these.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, XP multipliers do not affect coin earnings; however, the Flag Of Power does affect the amount of coins earned.
