Super Mario Odyssey guide: Lake Kingdom all purple coin locations

How to find every purple coin in the Lake Kingdom

There are two kinds of collectibles in nearly every Super Mario Odyssey kingdom: power moons and coins. And there are two types of coins: regular gold coins that you can find and spend anywhere and kingdom-specific purple coins. In this guide, we’ll show you the locations of every kingdom coin in the Lake Kingdom. (Check out our guide to the Lake Kingdom’s power moons to find all of those.)

There are 50 coins to collect in the Lake Kingdom.

We’ve broken the purple coins into 15 sets and numbered them all to correspond to the map above. Follow the numbers, and you can collect them all in one continuous loop, starting near the Odyssey and ending near the boss battle area.

1-5: Starting area

1. The first set is directly behind the Odyssey when it lands.

2. Hop into the water and swim a little northeast. Look for the zipper on the lakebed, then open up the rectangular area. These three coins are underneath.

3. Continue northwest to the trampoline in the corner of the pond. Jump up to the open area on your right — where the moon rock is (or was). There are three pillars in the wall. Remove them to get at another set of three coins.

4. Hop back into the water and cross in front of the building. There’s a zipper in the wall just to left. Open it to reveal an area where you can wall jump up to three more coins.

5. Use the trampoline in the middle of the pond to hop up to the ledge, then unzip the floor to reveal the entrance to the Underwater Entrance. (If this is your first time here, this is the way you have to go to get to the Water Plaza.) As soon as you get to the bottom, turn around to find these four coins directly behind you.

6: Courtyard

6. Get to the Courtyard. If you’ve already cleared this kingdom, you can just walk up the stairs (like in the first image in the gallery above). If this is your first time here, go through the Underwater Entrance, then turn left and look for a trampoline up to the Courtyard. Once there, stack up all of the Goombas you can find. Walk your stack to the southeast corner of the Courtyard to find a ledge with four more coins.

7-11: Courtyard to Water Plaza

7. From the Courtyard, keep along the southern edge of the lake as you start westward. Watch for a trampoline up to an 8-bit pipe (where you can collect moon 14). Head all the way to the left, then through the hole in the wall to find these coins.

8. Drop into the lake again, then continue a little more to the west. Just past the bubble where you can get moon 20, look for some wooden posts in the wall. Remove one of them to get at these three coins.

9. Swim around the back side of the Water Plaza. These coins are on the surface of the water behind the column that leads up to the roof.

10. If you’re already cleared this kingdom, you can just hop onto the trampoline next to you to get to the roof area. If this is your first time through, you’ll have to get to the roof by going through the inside of the Water Plaza. On the right (or south) side of the roof, next to the P-Switch are three more coins.

11. Head down inside the Water Plaza to the Water Plaza Display Window flag (it’s next to the shop). Look across the front of the Water Plaza to find these coins. There’s a very narrow ledge you can cross to collect them.

12-15: North side of the lake

12. Head back to the roof area of the Water Plaza. Turn to the left (or north). There’s a zipper around a small square on the wall ahead of you. Open it up to find four coins.

13. Use the trampoline next to you to jump over to the ledge north of you. Use the next trampoline to get into the red door. This is the challenge area where you get moons 24 and 25. Shimmy along the ledge to the left at the second wall (where the two yellow blocks slide back and forth). This will lead you around to the back of the wall where you’ll find three coins.

14. Once you’re done with the red door challenge area, head straight east to the next platform. These four coins are sitting out in the open on the ledge.

15. Drop into the lake one last time, then swim around the north side of the round boss battle platform. These three coins are right below the surface.
