A generic coin

Coins are the currency in the Sly Cooper series. They can be acquired throughout the games and are primarily used to purchase power-ups. With the exception of the coins that can be found lying on the ground (as in the first game), they despawn after a short amount of time unless collected, spinning faster with the passing seconds before disappearing with a sparkle. If Coin Magnetism or Coopergiwa's Gold Magnet have been obtained, coins will be collected from a large distance away from the character. If not, a coin can only be collected if they are touched with a character's body or hit with their weapon (e.g., Sly's cane).


Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus

Coins first appeared in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, where they were used in 100 coin intervals to purchase Lucky Charms. If 100 coins were collected and Sly had no charm, a silver charm would be given. With 100 more coins, a gold charm would be given. As long as Sly has a gold charm, every 100 coins will purchase another life. Coins could be collected by finding them laying on the ground or by destroying objects and defeating enemies.

Post Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus

From Sly 2: Band of Thieves on, coins were used to purchase power-ups from ThiefNet via Bentley's laptop. Coins could be collected by picking pockets, selling loot, destroying objects and, if an enemy's pocket has not been completely picked, by defeating said enemy. Loot had to be manually sold via ThiefNet in Sly 2, but in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, loot was automatically sold.

  • Coins seem to be used as the primary currency all over the world. They also appear throughout history, such as in 10,000 BC Australia,[1] 1001 AD Arabia,[2] and many other periods.[3]
  • In "The Evolution of Sly," Nate Fox mentions that they were originally going to use paper money but switched from that because paper money is different colors all across the world.
  • Coins disappear much faster in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus than they do in the following games.
