Cuphead Hidden Coins: 40 Base Game & 16 DLC Coins 

This Cuphead Hidden Coins guide will showcase both all 56 coins that are present in both games!

Cuphead is a game that was released, and it ended up being inspired by 1930’s older cartoons, whereby it was a run-and-gun shooting-based game, and the entire plot of Cuphead is simply paying off debts after being in a deal with the literal Devil. With the new DLC being also revealed recently, I thought it would be an excellent time to figure out how to get your hands on all the Cuphead Hidden Coins, both from the original game and the newest DLC!

Key Takeaways

In Cuphead, players can collect hidden coins for various rewards and achievements:

  • Collecting all hidden coins grants a special achievement.
  • These coins can be used at Porkrind’s Emporium to purchase upgrades, earning another secret achievement and bonus score.
  • A tutorial coin is obtained after completing the starting tutorial level.
  • Three gold coins can be acquired from an orange NPC after finishing the tutorial.
  • In the Forest Follies dungeon, players can gather 30 coins by defeating enemies and completing Run and Gun levels.
  • These levels feature 8 different enemies, including Acorn Maker, Deadly Daisy, Terrible Tulip, Murderous Mushroom, Toothy Terror, Bothersome Blueberry, Spiky Bulb, and Aggravating Acorn.

Original Cuphead 40 Coins 

Collecting coins is an essential part of the game, and they can be used to purchase various items and upgrades from Porkrind’s Emporium. Here’s a breakdown of where to find the original 40 coins in the game:

  1. Tutorial Coin: Found at the end of the tutorial level. Simply complete the tutorial to collect it.

  4. Donut-Faced Girl NPC Coin: In World 2, follow the rainbow bridges and caves until you reach the first rainbow bridge. Cross left and then cross the second rainbow bridge. Go down the steps, and you’ll find an NPC with a donut for a face. Complete her request to receive a coin.
  5. Juggler NPC Coin: Also in World 2, go to the right end of the rainbow bridge and descend the white marble stairs. Speak to the Juggler NPC, and he’ll ask you to achieve four parries without touching the ground to earn a coin.

  6. Remaining Four Coins in Open World: The last four original Cuphead Hidden Coins are located in the open-world areas. In World 1, find an NPC in front of some trees, and he’ll move to reveal a coin hidden in the trees. In World 2, go to the center of the playground and find a turquoise trailer with a coin embedded in it. In World 3, go up the docks and head behind the Porkrind’s Emporium area. Behind a small hut, you’ll find another coin. The last coin is located behind the wall on the left side of the casino.

Collecting all 40 coins will not only allow you to purchase upgrades and items from Porkrind’s Emporium but will also unlock special achievements for your character.

Next up, now that I have completed the 40 Original Cuphead coins, let’s take a look at some of the coins that will be featured in the newest DLC that was just recently released. It was released on 30th June 2022, and there seemingly seem to be tons of upgrades to levels and new bosses.
