In Forge of Empires, Coins are the most important resource which the player requires on a daily basis, along with Supplies. They are required for many actions in the game, which range from unlocking technologies, buying buildings, paying quest givers, purchasing Forge Points and more. A player can receive them from many sources, which include taxes, rewards and aids.
What Are They Used For?
Coins are mainly used for:
- Unlocking technologies
- Purchasing buildings
- Buying forge points (Note that the cost to buy 1 forge point goes up by 50 coins after each purchase)
- Infiltrating enemy armies
- Scouting a province
- Fulfilling certain quests
- Negotiating in Guild Expeditions
How to Get Coins?
Each residential building produce different amount of coins - some take minutes, while others can take as long as one day. The total amount of coins produced depends on how frequent the player collects from the building.
A note of interest is that the Hut (first residential building available) makes more coins than most of the other buildings, but the problem is that it needs to be collected every 5 minutes.
Many special buildings produce coins. Some produce them automatically and must be collected after a certain amount of time (usually 24 hours). Some special production buildings give coins as an option to be produced in a similar manner as production buildings produce supplies.
The amount of coins produced depends on the age of the building. Therefore the production of the coins will increase when the building is advanced to the next age with the Renovation Kit or the One Up Kit.
Coins can be earned from completing quests. Some quests have coins as a reward, while others have a random reward with a chance of it being coins (for example recurring quests). The coins earned from random rewards increase when the player progresses through the ages. For exact amounts see Random Quest Rewards.
Daily Challenges also have a chance of rewarding coins.
Some events have coins as one of the possible rewards.
Selling buildings will return a portion of the coins from the originally spent amount to the player.
For more information see the Coin Boost.
Players have various ways of boosting the production of the coins of their buildings. Boosts give a certain per cent increase to the coin collection from the buildings.
Coin packages are sometimes awarded during events. The amount of coins included in every package differs with age. There are five different sizes of coin packages.
