A pile of Gold Coins found naturally underground.

Coin Piles are background objects created when the player places a Copper, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Coin on the ground. They are for decorative purposes only. Only one coin is needed to create a pile (which occupies 1 tile, Coin Pile One Tile.png), but additional coins can be added to increase the pile size. Coin Piles can, like other furniture, be destroyed with a pickaxe or a drill. This allows a player to pick up the coins again.

Each Coin Pile shown below consists of six placed Coin items.

Coin piles are capable of rarely generating underground, specifically in the campsite and mosaic micro-biomes.


  • Coin Piles behave like Silt, Slush, and Sand and its variants; they will fall down instead of hovering in mid-air if whatever they are placed on is removed.
  • The appearance of Coin Piles changes after how they are placed to give impression of a flowing state.
  • Coin Piles look much more valuable than the coins they are made from. A single tile (1 coin) actually looks like 15 coins.
  • Coins will not balance out into a neat, orderly pyramid unless intentionally placed that way.


  • Desktop 1.2.4: Introduced. Patch notes: "You can now place coins to create Coin Piles. (Thanks Omnir!)"
