Super Mario 64 Coins

The main goal in Super Mario 64 is to get stars, but there are also many coins to get in each world. Below is a count of the coins I know of. Nintendo Power published an incorrect coin count. It even published a couple of incorrect "corrections." The screen image below proves Nintendo was wrong. (Click on the image to see it full-size.)

A few web pages that claim there are more coins, but most are not credible. Some have arithmetic errors, some claim excessively many coins with no explanation, and none I have seen have screen images or other evidence.

Note: In the years since I wrote this page, two additional coins have been found, one in Snowman’s Land and one in Tiny-Huge Island. They may be inaccessible with normal play.
