A Bear Coin is a type of coin found in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. Indicated by the name, these silver coins have a bear insignia on them. Bear Coins are the base currency of the game, used to buy various items from the Brothers Bear and play mini-games. Because of this, Bear Coins act much like Banana Coins from the previous game. In Donkey Kong Land III, they're used to buy items from Bear's Sheepy Shop. They resemble Banjo from Banjo-Kazooie, another game made by Rare also using Donkey Kong characters.
