Plants vs. Zombies 2 is the sequel to PopCap’s hit action-strategy, tower-defense mobile game in which you are tasked with defeating legions of zombies from the dawn of time to the end of days. Working with Crazy Dave, you amass an army of powerful new plants, super charge them with Plant Food and power up your defenses with new ways to protect your brain.
And to help you do so you’ll need Coins, which are currency in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that are used to buy extra Plant Food and Power Ups. As a free-to-play game, there are a few ways to get Coins — by playing the game or by buying them with real cash via the in-game store. There are also some helpful strategies that can be used to farm coins.
Check out our strategies and “cheats” on how to get more coins in Plants vs. Zombies 2. If you have any tips, cheats, or strategies for earning more Coins be sure to let us know in the comments below:
The easiest (and cheapest) way to get more coins is by playing the game. Random zombies drop Coin rewards when they are defeated. Simply tap (or swipe over) the rewards to collect them to your bank.
- Silver Coins = 10 Coins
- Gold Coins = 100 Coins
- Gems = 1000 Coins
Complete a Level
At the end of each level, you will receive a bonus of ten Coins for each lawnmower that was not triggered. Certain levels and mini-games will also reward bonus Coins at the end.
Purchase via in-game store
As a free-to-play title, this is one of the ways PopCap generates money with Plants vs. Zombies 2. Coin bundles can be purchased via the in-game Store, and deals are offered daily. You can access the Store from within the game by tapping the plus sign besides the Coins display. Below is the exchange rate:
- 5,000 Coins – $2.99
- 10,000 – $5.49
- 20,000 – $10.49
- 40,000 – $20.99
- 100,000 – $31.99
- 150,000 – $41.99
- 200,000 – $51.99
Grind, grind, grind
Go back and replay the stages that you can easily beat. Each time you play, zombies you kill will drop coins. You’ll want to replay the levels that tend to drop the most coins, like Level 6 in Ancient Egypt.
The Yeti Zombie
At certain times you will be notified that a Yeti has been sited; hurry to that level, defeat the level, then complete the stage (not completing the stage will result in you forfeiting your reward so be sure to beat it). While playing the stage where the Yeti was spotted, it will randomly wander onto the board. You have only a brief time in which to attack him, so be sure to focus him (it’s recommended that you use Plant Food or Power Ups to defeat him before he disappears). If the Yeti is successfully destroyed, you will be rewarded with treasure like Blue Gems.
