coin Coins are the basic unit of currency in Kingdom. The Monarch can purchase, build, upgrade, and acquire many things using coins, and they are considered to be the most fundamental aspect of the game.
Coins can be acquired through Farming, Hunting, Logging, paying the Merchant (newlands Kingdom: New Lands only), collecting Taxes (classic Kingdom: Classic only), and finding Treasure Chests out in the wilderness.
Coins are used to recruit Vagrants, purchase Tools, build & upgrade various Structures around the Kingdom, and to order various tasks be done (such as logging or ordering an assault on a portal). Coins can also be used as a buffer against direct attacks which would otherwise cause the Monarch to lose the Crown. Coins can also be given to Knights to add extra protection and health to resist enemy attacks as well. Lastly, coins can be dropped behind fleeing townsfolk to protect them from attacking Greedlings--They prefer stealing coins over attacking people.
