Gold Crimson Skull Coins are dropped by high-level Crimson Skull on Shing Jea Island.


Drop and salvage research is ongoing, and can be found here.


Haiju Lagoon[edit]

Starting from Zen Daijun, follow the route up to the Crimson Skull camp near the sea, you can evade all foes except for some Crimson Skull on the route. At the camp, four high level Crimson Skull reside (at the location of the player marker on the map) together with Miki the Skull Spirit who doesn't drop Gold Crimson Skull Coins. This run will also return some Silver Crimson Skull Coins and Copper Crimson Skull Coins. Having The Captured Son active will vastly improve spawns of all levels of Crimson Skulls though it makes farming a bit more difficult.

Panjiang Peninsula[edit]

This run isn't advised when farming for Gold Crimson Skull Coins alone, as the other run is faster. Start from Tsumei Village, following the route on the map, you will encounter no foes other than Crimson Skull. There are three bosses on the route with a chance of dropping two Silver Crimson Skull Coins at once (marked on the map), four high level Crimson Skull with a chance of dropping Gold Crimson Skull Coins (also marked on the map) and a lot of low level mobs dropping Copper Crimson Skull Coins, including some pop-ups. Average drops are around 6 Copper, 2 Silver and 0.5 Gold coins per run (resulting in one gold coin for every two runs).

  • The collector Guardsman Kikuchiyo trades 1 Gold Crimson Skull Coin for armor that sells for 50 Gold to a merchant. This provides a return that is two and a half times more than just selling the trophies by themselves.
