A money bag in Plants vs. Zombies

Money bags (Bag of Coins in Plants vs. Zombies 2) are items earned after completing levels in the Plants vs. Zombies series. Hence its name, it usually provides money for the player when collected. If the player does not collect the money bag on the screen for a few seconds, a small yellow arrow appears above it telling the player to collect it. It also appears in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare when a round in Garden Ops is completed.

It usually contains five gold coins ($250). These bags are only found when the player is completing a game mode a second time, since the trophy or the seed packets have already been collected.

Each money bag is worth:

In this game, a money bag contains 5 silver coins ($50). However, when 6.1.1 came out, for an unknown reason, most likely a glitch, they had been removed, but they have returned on June 22, 2017.

These bags are very similar to the first game. However, in this game, the money bag is packed with five silver coins that are all together worth 50 coins.

In the Chinese version, money bags have ten golden coins instead, a sum total of 1000 coins, and can also drop small money bags worth 500 coins from zombies, this only found by killing certain Treasure Yetis or Gargantuars from Daily Challenge in Yeti Runaway and Gargantuar Crisis respectively.

In Vasebreaker, once you complete a level for the first time, the money bag given has 20 silver coins, 200 coins in all.

  • Despite appears to hold more than five gold coins, it only gives five.
  • In the UK version of Plants vs. Zombies, there is a £ sign on the money bag rather than a $ sign, since that is the symbol for money in the UK. This also applies to the Japanese Yen versions (¥) and the Eurozone countries versions (€).
    • In the iOS and Android versions, there is only a coin symbol as there is no currency unit for the coins.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies 2, regardless of the country or area, it will always have a dollar symbol.
  • If a player gets 1500 coins in a Piñata Party in Plants vs. Zombies 2, the money bag looks very similar to the money bag in Plants vs. Zombies.
    • This could be due to the fact that when winning a level, the money bag has coins, but when getting 1500 coins in a Piñata Party, the money bag could be empty, as it has coins outside of the money bag.
  • Since the 3.6 update of Plants vs. Zombies 2, it will always jump onto the fifth tile of the second row.
  • These are given more frequently in Plants vs. Zombies 2 than in Plants vs. Zombies, due to the fact that the former has no separate game modes other than Vasebreaker, and the fact the former has over 310 levels, much more than the latter.
