Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope has two key currencies that players will need to keep an eye out for when they’re exploring. There are the regular gold coins for buying useful items and health restorations, and then there are the more elusive Planet Coins.

Planet Coins can be hard to find if you don’t know where to look. It’s worth the effort, though, as they’re incredibly handy to have while playing through Sparks of Hope. They can help you get some really valuable items from the Salesbot vendors.

Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to get Planet Coins in Sparks of Hope, including some advice on what you can buy with them and where to spend them.

How to Get Planet Coins in Sparks of Hope

There are two key ways that you can get Planet Coins in Sparks of Hope.

Find Floating Capsules

One of the easiest ways to get Planet Coins in Sparks of Hope is to keep an eye out for floating, cylindrical capsules hidden around the map. These capsules contain a Planet Coin, and often require you to solve a simple puzzle before getting to them.

As shown in the example screenshot above, there’s one hidden in one of the Beacon Beach house basements that you can access after a dungeon.

To get to it, all you need to do is simply slide a box out of the way. It’s a simple sliding puzzle, but it can be easy to miss it as you run past.

Complete Side Quests

There’s a main quest line that Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope follows, but there’s plenty of side quests too. Completing side quests is one of the most efficient ways to get Planet Coins in Sparks of Hope.

As you’re adventuring through the various worlds in the game, keep an eye out for any side quests that pop up nearby. You may have to fight a certain number of mobs for an NPC, for example.

Find Coin Challenges

Coin challenges appear throughout the world almost as frequently as side quests, and they’re another great way to farm Planet Coins in Sparks of Hope.

You’ll be able to spot coin challenges when a glowing ring appears in the world, or when a pipe appears for you to jump in. Once you run through a ring or jump into a pipe, you’ll need to collect a certain amount of coins and beat a timer.

Where to Spend Planet Coins

Each world in the game has unique Planet Coins, and you’ll be able to spend the coins at any of the nearby Salesbot vendors. You won’t be able to spend Planet Coins from one planet at another planet’s Salesbot vendors.

You can buy lots of interesting items with Planet Coins, but arguably the most important picks are Planetary Keys (to unlock unique quests that reward you with the ability to recruit a new Spark) and Star Potions (for leveling up Sparks).

Other items include Memories, which contain interesting lore, and unique weapons skins, too.
