Coin collecting in video games has certainly come a long way since Mario Bros. In this essay, we will show you where to collect all the collectable coins in the post-apocalyptic collect-a-thon video game, The Last Of Us Part II.
[WARNING: We've done everything we can to minimize spoilers in this walkthrough so you can enjoy the game even if you need help finding collectibles. However, if you want to know nothing about the game before playing, you should stop reading now.]
If you're reading this guide, you've no doubt gathered that The Last Of Us Part II has no one, but two different types of collectibles. You've no doubt found all the trading cards using our Last Of Us 2 trading card guide, and now you're here to finish the job... with coins! There are 32 coins in total to find in the game's second half, and doing so will earn you a PlayStation trophy that you can show off to all your friends and relatives when they ask you what you achieved this month.
The coins can certainly a little bit trickier to find than the trading cards, not just because they're smaller, but some of them are certainly in some devilish locations. In this guide, we'll point you towards the location of every coin in the game, divided by chapter. As we recommended in the trading card guide, for additional help we recommend turning on the game's High Contrast mode in the accessibility options, as well as the Enhanced Listening Mode in the Navigation and Traversal accessibility menu if finding these things means a lot to you.
Need help with some other parts of The Last Of Us Part 2? You're in luck, because we have a bunch of guides going up for those that need a little extra helping hand in the post-apocalypse. Check back often, as we'll be posting it piece by piece gradually. We recommend bookmarking our Last of Us 2 guide roundup, which we will keep updated with the latest walkthroughs and guides as they get published.
