Silver Coin's artwork from the game Diddy Kong Racing DS for DS.

Silver Coins are items found in the games Diddy Kong Racing and Diddy Kong Racing DS. They are coins collected on racing courses during the Silver Coin Challenges.

Overview

In Diddy Kong Racing, Silver Coin Challenges can only be accessed after the player has beaten the boss of the current world in a race during the Adventure Mode, and has collected the required number of Golden Balloons in order to unlock the course of the challenge. During the races of the Silver Coin Challenges, the player must collect all eight of these coins and finish the course in the first place, which then rewards them a Golden Balloon. After all Silver Coin Challenges in each course of the current world are beaten, the player can return to the racing course of the world's boss and unlock a Trophy Race.

During the Adventure Mode of Diddy Kong Racing DS, the Silver Coin Challenges are replaced by Balloon Pop Challenges. However, it is still possible to access the former ones by purchasing them from Taj the Genie. Each Silver Coin Challenge becomes unlockable after the Balloon Pop Challenges are cleared in the respective courses.
