The Lucky Coin is an extremely rare Hardmode accessory that while equipped causes enemies to drop extra coins when damaged. The Lucky Coin is dropped by Pirates during a Pirate Invasion at a rate of 1/4000 (0.025%) or from the Flying Dutchman at a rate of 1/200 (0.5%), but is not dropped by Parrots.

With the Lucky Coin equipped, there is a 1/5 (20%) chance that 1 to 10 extra coins will drop each time the player damages an enemy. Each time extra coins drop, the following probabilities determine the coin type:

  • 89.1% chance for Copper Coin copper coins
  • 9.9% chance for Silver Coin silver coins
  • 1% chance for Gold Coin gold coins

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On average, 6 Silver Coin 9 Copper Coin will drop each time the effect occurs.
  • This item is generally considered to be the best way to make money in-game, when paired with a very weak weapon, usually a Slime Staff with the broken prefix.
  • Extra coins can drop from damage caused by player-placed traps in singleplayer, but can't in multiplayer.
  • Extra coins will not drop from damage return effects, such as those provided by Turtle armor or Thorns Potion.
  • Entities that don't normally drop coins, like Critters, Statue-spawned enemies, Mummies, or Meteor Heads during Hardmode, will still not drop coins even with the Lucky Coin equipped.
    • A previous exception was from Mimics from Chest statues (confirmed only in a normal, pre-hardmode world), but as of 1.3.1, Chest statues don't drop coins either (proved on both a normal pre-hardmode world and a normal hardmode world).
  • The Lucky Coin is very rare. It takes an average of 33-34 complete Pirate Invasions before it drops.
  • It is possible to get a Lucky Lucky Coin, with the modifier being Lucky, then the item's name.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Use the Slime Staff and Tiki Armor. Against stronger enemies (like Mimics), the baby slime summoned by the staff will attack rapidly, but only do 1 damage per hit. This offers more chances for coins to drop. Using this tactic during a Pirate Invasion can easily produce 2-3 Platinum Coin platinum coins per invasion. Also this tactic can be implemented during a Solar Eclipse to produce 4-5 Platinum Coin platinum coins per eclipse.
  • In expert mode, enemies have increased health which means the amount of platinum coins can skyrocket anywhere from 10-15 Platinum Coin. Enemies also pick up coins in expert mode, however, so letting anything escape can reduce the amount gathered dramatically.
  • Fight weaker bosses like the Wall of Flesh as they will not deal much damage but have lots of health.
  • Also, try using a minishark. Its damage is low enough that it will usually only do one damage per hit, and it rapidly fires.
