Shadow of the Colossus: All 79 Coin Locations

This page contains information on all new Hidden Coins found in the Shadow of the Colossus Remake for the PS4. On top of being a complete remake, the game includes new features not found in the previous version.

One such addition are mysterious glowing coins that appear all over the world in Shadow of the Colossus – mostly found in forgotten corners or hard to reach places. These coins emit a faint glow – usually when you are only a few paces away. A better sign that you are near is a faint tune emanating from your controller that signifies a coin is near.

Once you have collected a coin, one of the clouds in the bottom left of the map will vanish to show a number – the number of coins you have (this will carry on into New Game+ and beyond).

It was found through the community at large and by YouTuber PS4Trophies that there are 79 coins in total, matching a cryptic message in the credits that alluded to “the 79 steps to enlightenment”. Once all the coins have been found, returning to the Main Shrine and interacting with the door will reveal a hidden passage below the shrine where the Dormin’s Sword lies. This weapon is infused with a dark aura, increasing attack but lowering health regeneration.

See below for information on coins we have located:

Refer to our current map of known coins – and the written and image guides below in order of the Map Quadrants that they are found:

The following coins are located in row 0 (the very top) of the map in Shadow of the Colossus.

Edit0F

This coin can be found at entrance to the Forbidden Lands on the giant bridge.

Unfortunately, this means the only way to get up requires enough stamina to get up top of main shrine – which can only be obtained after defeating enough Colossus and finding Lizards to boost your stamina, usually requiring at least four playthroughs.

The following coins are located in row 1 of the map.

Edit1C

While in the large open area, look along the East wall.

You will see a spot with a few dead trees, and several rocks that look climbable. Scramble up them to find a coin.

Edit1D

Upon first entering the watery arena of the swimming Colossus, the coin you seek is located nearby.

After crossing the long path to a broken section angling down, double back and jump across the gap.

Continue back to the area where the bridge first began to find some rubble where the coin is resting.

This coin is found in the watery arena.

Towards the West side of the arena is a broken piece of bridge, with a very tall, square pillar beside it. From the southern side, climb the pillar all the way to the top to get the coin.

This coin is found near the edge of the Colossus arena.

While crossing the bridge into the water arena, turn around. You want to then jump up on the ledge, and from here, jump to the land mass that’s behind the wall. Once behind the wall, simply follow it South to the coin.

Another coin can be found along the path that runs through the southern end of the quadrant.

If you come from the Colossus arena above, the path will split South/West. Go West and you’ll spot lots of trees among the rocks.

Start climbing up here, through the trees, and you’ll soon spot a coin.

Edit1E

This coin is located along the North cliffs of the quadrant.

Near the North-East corner, look along the cliffs for some rocks that have shrubs on them.

A bit West of the bushes, you’ll find some rocks that let you climb up. The coin is sitting among the bushes.

Edit1F

There are three coins to find in this quadrant.

The first is located down the winding path leading into the dried lakebed where Colossus 11 is.

At the base of the winding path, head South along the small pool to find the coin

The second is also located in the dried lakebed where Colossus 11 is, after heading up the ramp out of the lakebed.

Once you reach the top of the ramp, double back along the North cliff to find the coin behind a large rock at the end.

The third is also located in the dried lakebed where Colossus 11 is.

After heading up the ramp out of the lakebed towards the Colossus, move left and go South to where an old doorway has crumbled down to find the coin off to the left.

Edit1G

The first is located at the entrance to the temple where Colossus 15 is.

Climb up the plateau of rocks right in front of the entrance to the temple to find the coin in a bush.

The second is also located at the entrance to the temple where Colossus 15 is.

Jump down from the entrance to find two tunnels under the temple, the closest one hides a coin along the West side.

The third is also located in the arena of Colossus 15.

After defeating the giant, return to where it first climbed up from the cliff, and look to the North side of the cliff face to find the coin.

The next coin can only be obtained while fighting the Colossus.

During the fight, you need to climb to the very top of the South wall. You would normally do this during the fight anyways.

Once at the top, walk to the very western tip. There is a small overhang, and off in the distance you will see more buildings and a staircase. Aim for that, jump and Parachute your way towards it. Once you land near the stairs, go down them to find a coin.

The last coin requires you to be fighting the Colossus (This MUST be done during the story fight).

Get up to the very top of the South wall, just like you did for the previous coin.

Once up here, float over to the area where the previous coin was located.

From here, continue walking West, to the very ledge, then jump down into the area below.

Once here, you find a large grate that’s busted. Jump inside to find the coin.

These coins can be found along row 2 of the map.

Edit2C

Found in the arena of Colossus 14, head along the path of columns you had to have the Colossus ram into.

On the West side of the arena, look for a sunken waterway and check the start of the waterway to find the coin.

Another coin is also found in the arena.

Head to where you first see the Colossus. While facing his spawn area, look left among the standing pillars to find the coin.

Edit2D

There are two coins in this quadrant.

One is found along the western edge.

There is a path that goes from the middle to the top left of the quadrant. At one point, there are stairs and some pillars. Behind the a pillar is the coin, tucked in some brush.

The next coin is found along the path that leads North-West out of the quadrant.

Just as you transition from 2D into 2C, look East along the wall for some rocks you can climb. The coin is at the top.

Edit2E

After you fight the third Colossus atop the raised platform over the lake, return to where you fought him, and inspect the outer ledges.

Look down below to spot several small platforms where some still have chains attached to them. Moving counter-clockwise, move along the ledges until you pass three such platforms with chains to a platform below that is missing its chains. Leap down below (you’ll only take a little damage), and the coin is on the platform.

You can find another coin by going through the small canyon that leads South-East from the colossus fight.

A short distance through, you’ll see a large rock that looks like a bridge over the canyon. just a few dozen feet North of it, on the Eastern wall, are some rocks you can climb up to reach the rock bridge. Once up here, you’ll spot the coin.

Edit2F

This coin is located in the middle of the quadrant, but requires you to have access to the bridge, which means you need to be able to climb the temple. You will also need the Parachute from Time Attack Mode.

Once on the bridge, walk until you reach the indicated spot, where a small rocky outcropping can be seen below. Jump down to it, using the Parachute to float onto the top, where the coin is.

Another coin is located in the North-East corner of the quadrant.

Simply head to the corner and look for a rock with trees on it. Climb to the tree to find the coin.

Edit2G

There are three coins to find in this quadrant.

The first is found on the path to Colossus 12.

Upon entering the small forest, look for a large rock plateau that you can jump up on one side.

Cross the narrow wooden log to the other side and jump to the top to get the coin.

The second is also found on the path to Colossus 12.

On the East side of the small forest is a small waterfall, and the coin is at the base of the falls.

The third is also located just outside the arena where you fight Colossus 12.

Swim away from the large waterfalls and cross to the East side, then swim down to the other side and look for moss to climb up.

Once across, head down and take the path East to a coin.

You can find the following coins along row 3 of the map.

Edit3D

Located inside the arena where you fight Colossus 9, Enter the large cave that the giant emerged from.

Move along the East wall going back until you find the coin among some stalagmites.

Edit3F

There are two coins in this quadrant.

When engaging the second Colossus, you’ll notice that the beast bursts through a large wall at the base of the shoreline.

After you defeat the behemoth, return to the wall he broke when emerging.

Look among the darkened recess of the cave the Colossus emerged from, and if you hang to the left side when entering, you’ll find the coin in a small hole obscured from view.

The next coin is found from up above the boss arena. Head along the upper edge of the desert pit until you’re on the East side.

Once you’re on the East, you’ll see a spot you can jump down. Hop down the short distance, then follow the path South-East until you spot the coin.

These coins can be found along row 4 of the map.

Edit4B

A coin can be found just before entering the cave where the Colossus is found.

Just outside the North end of the cave is a shrine. Climb to the top to find a coin.

Located just before the arena where you fight Colossus 10.

Look along the narrow tunnel for a stack of rocks blocking an alcove, and check behind it for a coin.

The next coin is located during the boss fight.

When the fight begins, head South and find a small series of rocks, that stand maybe 10 feet tall.

Stand behind them, and let the Colossus smash through them and you. Once they break, a coin will appear.

Edit4C

In the top-right corner of 4C, there is a fairly sizable mountain (large enough to appear on the map).

You need to climb to the top to get the coin. However, due to the extremely sharp angles, and high slopes, there is no easy way to climb up. Simply jump around, and force Wanderer up ledges and slopes until you reach the top.

Edit4E

There are three Coins located in this quadrant.

The first coin is located on the South side of the middle landbridge that connects Colossus 9 to the forest that leads down to Colossus 6.

After crossing the bridge to the South into a narrow canyon, look along the West wall for a path to jump up and over into another ravine, and follow the ravine West to find a coin at the end.

The second coin, not found in any Colossus arena, can be found on the path towards the sixth Colossus.

From the central Shrine, head Southwest towards the forest, but veer to the right to enter a small dead-end canyon that stops and leads you to the coin.

In the top-left corner of 4E, there is a small stoney mountain.

Approach from the South-West side to find a slope you can walk up. Wrap around the left and you’ll spot the coin sitting on some rocks.

Edit4F

There are three Coins located in in this quadrant.

The first coin can only be found up in the secret garden when you have enough stamina to climb the Central Shrine up, which will take several playthroughs to amass enough stamina (at least four).

Once you reach the garden, the coin can be found along the North wall.

The next coin is located to the North of the temple. You can see it sitting beside the pillar that holds up the bridge, just across the gap.

However, in order to get it, you must beat the game several times (or collect enough Lizards) to increase your stamina. You need to be able to climb to the top of the temple, then jump down from the bridge to the bottom and pick up the coin. The parachute is also strongly recommended so you survive the fall (obtained by completing Time Attack).

The next coin is located in the bottom-right corner of the quadrant.

Once in the corner, face the mountain to the East. There will be a large, sloped rock you can walk up, then jump North along the rocks to spot the coin.

Edit4G

This coin is found along a rocky uprising, when following the tiny path that leads West-East.

From the West side of the rocks, start climbing up and head East to the top until you spot the coin.

Another coin is found on the path leading towards Colossus 4.

Along the North side of the rocks, there is a path you can climb. It’s easier to find if you look out for a log up in the mountains. Climb the rocks, go over the log, then around the corner. Once you can climb no further, look across the canyon to see the coin on the other side. Jump and Parachute to it.

The next coin is in the same spot as the last.

Climb the rocks again, cross over the log and go around the corner. Now though, head left/up until you reach a large rock with a tree, and the coin.

Edit4H

Before entering the water to reach the colossus, you can find a coin.

Just before you jump in the water, look left to find rocks that let you climb the cliffs. Do so to find a coin by some trees.

After your fight with the fifth bird-like Colossus over the water, return to the area.

Note the rows of small platforms where you lured the Colosuss into attacking. From the entrance, keep to the left as you move up until you come to a row of four small platforms.

Look inside the far passage on the left to find the coin inside, near the small platforms.

This next coin can only be obtained while fighting the boss (Parachute from Time Attack Mode is also mandatory).

Climb onto his right wing, then hold on to the very edge.

While holding on, wait for it to fly over the building you entered the arena from. You need to jump to the upper level, so make sure the wing is lifted high enough, then jump from the wing, parachuting over to the platform. Once landed, simply walk around the area until you find steps leading down, and you’ll see the coin sitting on them.

The following coins are located on row 5.

Edit5A

Located South of where Colossus 10 is fought, head down the path to the coast until you go down your first large slope to a lower area.

Then, double back along the rocky cliffs to the West to find a coin at a dead end.

Edit5B

Found on “Ico Beach” that’s to the West of the lone landbridge connecting Colossus 10 to Colossus 6, head down to the path below the bridge to the shore.

Ride along West until you find a large rock in the middle of the beach, where you can find the coin on top.

A second coin is also located on this beach.

Shortly after getting off the ramp that leads down here. Enter the water so that you are basically submerged and start walking along the beach to soon spot the coin.

Edit5E

There are three coins found in this Quadrant.

A new addition to the game is located Southwest of the Main Shrine, on your way to the Sixth Colossus.

Head to the forest in the Southwest and look to the right of the path leading to the cliffs to find a slope leading into a darkened cave.

At the end of the cave you can find one of The Last Guardian’s barrels. Near the barrel is a glowing coin-like object that emanates a song from the PS4 controller.

The second coin may not be located near a Colossus, but is on the way to the sixth Colossus.

After passing through the forest, look for a winding path that goes towards the desert, but hang left to find a path down to a lake and small wooded area. You should spot a waterfall on the otherside of a natural bridge – just double back under it once you get down to find the coin at the base of the falls.

The final coin is located in the center region of the forest.

While walking around the forest, closer to the southern edge, keep an eye out for a large stone pillar covered in moss. Climb it to get the coin.

Edit5F

There are four known coins in this quadrant.

After defeating the first Colossus, return to the arena in which you fought the giant, and look for a carved ruined wall against the far back.

The ruined wall has two sections, and you can scramble up the rubble on the right to reach the second floor.

When you reach the second floor, jump to the ruined alcove and here you can find the coin hiding behind a small pillar.

The second coin is found just a split second before you would trigger the boss normally.

As soon as you reach the boss arena, take a hard right and follow the wall. You’ll soon come across some rocks that look like steps. Go up them to find a coin.

The next coin is very nearby. First, climb up to the arena where you would fight Colossus 1.

Once up here, hug the left ledge until it connects to the mountain, then look down.

Jump down to the ledge below (parachute can help), then walk North until you spot the coin.

The final coin is located in the canyon that connects 5F to 5G.

Just as you enter it, keep your eye along the left(east) edge. You’ll spot some climbable rocks that lead to a coin.

Edit5G

When you head towards the grove to reach Colossus 4, you’ll pass through the long cave and come to the edge of the cliff with a small canyon below.

As you reach the edge of the cliff, look down into the canyon, and you can spot a trail going down, as well as a wall of vegetation you can use to climb down.

At the bottom of the canyon is a small pool of water. Follow it to the end to find the glowing coin.

Another coin is located in the area you fight the Colossus.

Along the South wall, look for a chunk of rock that sticks out noticeably and has a small tree on it. To the East are some rocks that let you climb to it, and the coin it holds.

The next coin is located in the small canyon that runs through the western side of 5G.

Along the East wall, you’ll spot a section that looks climbable. Your destination is a small cluster of trees among the rocks.

Start a bit further back and clamber up the rocks until you’re able to leap to the trees.

These coins can be found along row 6 of the map.

Edit6D

There are two coins in this quadrant.

This is a tricky coin to find, located in the underground arena where the bearded Colossus is found.

To get to it, you must find a way to climb to the second floor of the far balcony with the pillars where you hid from the giant to get him to bend down. Scrambling up the left side and jumping is hard – but possible. You can also try reliving the fight and jumping from the Colossus to the platform after climbing up his beard.

The second coin is found just outside the temple that leads to the Colossus.

While facing the temple, look left to see a small (20ish feet tall) section of gray stone. Climb it to find the coin.

Edit6E

There are two coins in this quadrant.

Found in the desert expanse where you fight Colossus 13, head Southeast until you find a large rocky pillar with another slab leaning against it.

It doesn’t look like it, but you can spam the jump button to run up the slab and onto the pillar to find a coin at the top.

The second coin is located near the South edge of the quadrant.

When you get near the southern end, you’ll spot a semi submerged stone ring. In the middle of the ring is the coin.

Edit6G

The first is located in the lush poolside area where the ruins that house Colossus 8 are.

When you first enter the lake, look for a large rock rising out of the water and jump up the side to get on top and find the coin.

The second is found inside the ruins leading to Colossus 8.

Head across the lake area to find the ruins of a doorway leading down into a darkened area.

In the room with the two pillars that form walkway to the boss arena, look under the pillar on the left side to find the coin.

The next coin is located just after entering this enclosed area.

After entering the enclosed region, you cross a land bridge over water, with a waterfall to your left. Once across the bridge, turn right and go to the wall, then jump along the ledge to the coin.

Another coin is located in the arena where you fight the colossus.

From the doorway you enter, go right. Once you pass the knocked out wall section, approach the second window after it, hold R2 then roll through. Now climb left and pull yourself up to the tiny platform for the coin.

Edit6H

There is one coin in this quadrant.

You can find it by heading to the East edge of the map.

Once near the edge, you’ll spot a section where the land dips downwards. Instead of heading down, walk up along the northern edge. You’ll come across a tree stump with a coin beside it.

Below are all the coins found along Row 7.

Edit7D

There is one coin in this quadrant.

You can find it on the Western tip of land that sticks out in the middle of the quadrant.

When you arrive in this area, look down over the western lip to see an area below. Climb down there and you’ll soon spot the coin near the end of the trail. (We had issue with this coin appearing, sometimes taking several seconds to show up. Use the picture as reference if you too have issue).

Edit7F

There is one coin in this quadrant.

You can find it by going to the very western tip of the mountain range that spans the middle of this area.

Once there, you’ll spot a large grouping of green stones, with a small split between them. Walk through the split then go left to find the coin.

Edit7G

There are two coins in this area.

The first is found towards the top of the quadrant, where there’s a giant cliff.

Stand at the top of the cliff, at the point of the left most triangular dip. Look down to spot a brown/tan rocky outcropping. Drop down to it and look around for the coin. (Parachute not mandatory, but helpful).

The second coin is located towards the South edge of the quadrant.

As you approach the South edge, you’ll spot a group of large, moss covered stones. Jump up onto them, and among them will be the coin.

Edit7H

There is one coin in this quadrant.

Hug the right side, following the edge of the map.

When you get nearly half-way down the quadrant, you’ll see a section with several ledges off the edge of the map. Jump down to them to find the coin. (Don’t worry, you can climb back up).

The last coins can be found in Row 8 of the map.

Edit8E

This is found right along the edge of the small landmass of 8E.

When you approach the edge, you’ll see a clearly climbable stone structure. Don’t go up, instead go around it’s right side. A small path leads down and around to the coin.

Edit8F

There are five coins to find in this Quadrant.

The first coin can be found once you have opened the sealed door to face Colossus 16.

Right after opening the door, enter, and then look around on the right side to find a coin stashed behind the door.

The second coin can be found just before the point of no return when going to fight Colossus 16.

Before using Agro to jump across the bridge, head West along the walkway spanning the chasm instead to find a platform that extends over the pit, and there you will find the coin.

The third coin you can only find past the point of no return when going to Colossus 16. After losing Agro, climb up onto the lower platform and use it to run East and over some rocks to bypass the ruined part of the walkway, and find some moss to climb.

Climb the moss up and to the left to reach a very small outcropping that hides a coin.

The fourth coin is located inside the arena where you face Colossus 16, it can be hard to obtain given the giant’s endless barrage of fireballs.

Once you drop down into the first trench, head to the makeshift stairs leading back up, but look left to find a raised platform where a coin can be heard.

To reach it, you need to drop into one of several hidden pits on the East side of the arena. From the first barricade on the ground level, look left to spot one such pit and quickly roll and drop down into it and take the path back to the ledge where the coin is.

The fifth coin is also located inside the arena where you face Colosus 16. Once you drop down the second trench that empties onto the West side of the chasm, climb around back to the e entrance to the third trench.

Instead of going inside, run left and stay out of line of sight of the giant until you can move all the way left to the edge of the chasm, where a coin is on a small rocky outcropping.

The final coin is located after you get beneath Colossus 16.

Instead of climbing up, get out from under him and go right (West). You will see a small path that leads around the mountain. Follow it to the coin.

WARNING – This coin is extremely hard to reach due to fireballs. It’s highly suggested you have the invisibility cloak from Time Attack Mode. If you do not have it, you must sneak over. First, jump down from the Colossus platform, then hold R2 to crouch. Next, just as a fireball lands, run to the closest patch of green, and hold R2 again. If you get hit, don’t worry, just hold R2 through all of it. Eventually, your crouching will cause the Fireballs to start missing. Once this starts, simply time it so you make a mad dash around the corner just as a fireball hits, thus giving you the most time to reach the coin. Given how difficult this is, we highly suggest you just do Time Attack Mode.
