Rusted Gold Coin is an Item in Dark Souls 3. It is one of the Burial Gifts available to players.


Rusted Gold Coin

A rusty old gold coin that surely has no currency.

Crushing the coin gives a large, if temporary, boost to item discovery.

A rich man lost his fortune, but it returned to him twofold. He was swift to squander his retrieved fortune, smugly confident that it was bound to double once again.


  • Increase Item Discovery by 100 points, for 60 seconds.
  • No. Held limit: 10


Where to Find Rusted Gold Coin



  • Effect stacks with Symbol of AvariceCovetous Gold Serpent Ring, and Crystal Sage's Rapier.
  • Discussion of "optimal" Item Discovery often mentions the Gold coin, but this can be misleading. The Gold coins are minor and limited, especially endgame when Item Discovery gear and unlimited normal Rusted Coins are available. The "difference" a Gold coin makes might be having 400 instead of 350 Item Discovery, a handful of times. (Or even less than that.) It is not important. Their best use is early-game, for help farming weapons needed for a build. But even then, the early-game difference between 110 and 210 Item Discovery is less than double, for a very short time. It's never very important.

    • Max Item Discovery02 May 2016 20:20  

      Maximum item discovery is actually 599 if you hold two of the Crystal Sage's Rapiers. Some enemies have extended death animations, so you can switch to the second Crystal Sage's Rapier before they completely die.

        Not sure if it was an update or balance change recently, but Coins no longer clear when resting at a bonfire, they run on a timer, I can do 2 Anor Londo Silver Knight runs (2 Knights, not the red eyes) and open my stat sheet and watch it run-off after a few seconds, so 2 kills > bonfire rest > 2 kills > Coin runs-off.<br/><br/>Though I'm pretty sure Homewarding or Coiling (lol) still clear ALL active effects, buffs and debuffs.

          On the page for Greirat it states that there's no way to save him from his Lothric trip, yet this page seems to imply that not only can Greirat survive but his upgraded inventory will also include rusted gold coins. Which of these two articles are correct?

            Could it be that this item increases the chance of slain enemies to drop rare stuff(like armor or titanite)? Sounds pretty logical to me if you think about the describtion.

              Unbreakable Patches sells these coins 200 souls a piece upon him becoming a vendor (be it after the Shrine Tower incident or the Cathedral of the Deep incident). He will re-locate to Firelink Shrine after both occasions.
