Resident Evil 7 Antique Coins are a collectible dotted throughout the game's many locations, and can be used to purchase special items, some of which you cannot find anywhere else.
As such, they're worth tracking down. Not only do they unlock certain items, but they also unlock Trophies and Achievements, such as Pelicans in Your Pocket.
Note that the Normal and Easy Antique Coins differ to those on Madhouse difficulty, which we'll specifically cover in-depth in coming days.
What are Antique Coins used for in Resident Evil 7?
In the game's default Easy and Normal difficulties, there are 18 Antique Coins to find, and can be spent in the Yard (specifically the Trailer before you head to the Old House) and the Swamp (inside the safe house).
- 3 Coins - Steroids (increase max health indefinitely)
- 5 Coins - Stablizer (reloading speed increases indefinitely)
- 9 Coins - 44 MAG (a lot of kick back, and a lot of stopping power)
Resident Evil 7 Antique Coins locations on Normal and Easy for the Pelicans in Your Pocket
The following coins are listed in the order you'll come across them in the game's campaign. Note to unlock the Pelicans in Your Pocket Trophy or Achievement, you have to collect them all in a single playthrough, so if you're playing first time, scroll through the list and make sure you haven't missed any, as there are points of no return for each area.
