The Gold Ring is a Hardmode accessory that greatly increases the pickup range for coins. It has a 1/500 (0.2%) chance to be dropped by pirates (except Parrots) during Pirate Invasions, with a 1/125 (0.8%) chance from the Pirate Captain. It also has a 1/15 (6.67%) chance to be dropped by the Flying Dutchman(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

The increase in pickup range is 21.875 tiles, extending the base range of 2.625 tiles to 24.5 tiles. This effect does not stack with that of any of the Gold Ring's upgrades.

  • The Gold Ring can be useful for picking up dropped coins from flying enemies or collecting coins from an enemy farm.
  • Farming for a Lucky Coin/Discount Card/Gold Ring is most efficient from Flying Dutchmen, rather than from common pirates. After getting event progress to 50%, one can ensure 10 Flying Dutchmen per event by getting high enough above the ground (using a small platform or flying mount), but not too high, so that spawned enemies will be in the "Active Rectangle" and will despawn after 12.5 seconds, and then spawn again. Using this method, only Flying Dutchmen and Parrots can reach the player. Parrots can be killed safely as they do not count towards event progress.


  • The Gold Ring is visually very similar to the Diamond Ring. While the Gold Ring's gems have a slightly blue hue and the gem in the middle has small golden spots on the side, the Diamond Ring consists of completely white gems.
  • The Gold Ring is the least rare of the ingredients for the Greedy Ring.


  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Drop rates doubled outright. The increased drop rate from Pirate Captains has also been doubled.
    • Flying Dutchman now has a substantially increased chance of dropping this item, with a 1/15 chance.
