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.


Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

Bear Coins are the base currency of the game, used to buy various items from the Brothers Bear and play minigames. 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.

Bear Coins can be found hidden throughout most levels, often invisible to the player until collected. There are always at least two in every level, since completing a Bonus Stage rewards the player with one Bear Coin. When having lost a life and replaying the level, although a Bear Coin has already been collected, it can be picked up again. Losing a life will not subtract collected Bear Coins in a level.
