Medals are a resource whose main purpose is to unlock victory expansions. The number of medals needed to unlock next expansion increases with each expansion that has already been purchased. The cost of each victory expansion can be viewed here.
Medals can be used for:
- Buying expansions for your city.
- Buying extra attempts for the Guild Expeditions and PvP Arena.
- Negotiating in the Guild Expeditions.
- Paying crew members for Arctic Harbor and Oceanic Terminal.
- Unlocking defending armies and placing sieges in the All Ages province of the Guild vs. Guild map.
- Producing goods or special goods via Synthesizers.
Many special buildings produce medals. Some produce them automatically and must be collected after certain amount of time (usually 24 hours). Some special production buildings give medals as an option to be produced in a similar manner as production buildings produce supplies. Some special buildings might give medals randomly as one of the possible rewards, for example the Wishing Well.
The amount of medals produced depends on the age of the building. Therefore the medals production will increase when the building is advanced to the next age with the Renovation Kit or the One Up Kit.
|Colosseum||Provides 10 medals at level 1 and 35 medals at level 10. After level 10 additional 2-3 additional medals are gained with each level. Colosseum is considered as a bad option for medal production considering its large footprint.|
|Deal Castle||Provides 40 medals at level 1 and 170 medals at level 10. After level 10 additional 9-16 medals are gained with each level.|
|Gaea Statue||Provides 127 medals at level 1 and 367 medals at level 10. After level 10 additional 30 or less medals are gained with each level. The amount lessens with higher levels.|
|The Blue Galaxy||Provides 140 medals at level 1 and 414 medals at level 10. After level 10 additional 33 or less medals are gained with each level. The amount lessens with higher levels.|
|Space Carrier||While before Arctic Future, provides 10 medals at level 1 and 26 medals at level 10. After level 10 additional 2 or less medals are gained with each level. The amount lessens with higher levels. In Arctic Future and beyond provides the same amount of special goods instead.|
|Flying Island||When collecting a Rare shard, there is a chance to receive current era Gigantic package of medals.|
Great Building Contributions
Medals can be earned from completing quests. Some quests have medals as a reward, while others have a random reward with a chance of it being medals (for example recurring quests). The medals 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 medals.
Some events have medals as one of the possible rewards.
Some medals are awarded each week depending on players' ranking in PvP Arena and age.
In Antiques Dealer medals can be either purchased from the shop or won in auction.
