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.
  • 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]

  • The Slime Staff and a statue farm can generate platinum extremely fast. Use High HP enemies like the unicorn, mimic and medusa then drop the slime into the box. By standing to one side all 9 enemies (3 from each statue) will group up and be hit simultaneously by the slime generating tons of money. Build this underground away from bosses and enemies like mothron and you can safely AFK cash.
  • 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.
