Green Coins are coins that first appears in New Super Mario Bros. U. They are spawned from Green Rings.


In New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, after going through a Green Ring, they spawns one group of three Green Coins appears one time rotating clockwise in a three-leaf clover with the coins still spinning. They will disappear after every three seconds if all of them are not collected in time. The timer will reset when the next group appears in a different spot after the last group collected. Only five groups of three Green Coins are collected to clear, with a total of fifteen coins. When they are collected, a green numbered text appears based on depending what amount collected. It is similar to that to Red Coins, as collecting all of them the player gets a power-up or 1-Up Mushroom. The Green Coin will use the same sound as yellow coins if only one or two of the Green Coins in a group are collected, but collecting all three of them uses the same sound effect as collecting a Red Coin with incremented with every group collected. Every Green Coin is worth one yellow coin.

Green Coins, also referred to as Green Star Coins in the Prima Games guide, reappear in Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, this time resembling small Star Coins. After going through a star-shaped Green Ring, eight Green Coins start to appear separately like Red Coins, though they only appear for a limited time and disappear if they are not all collected in time, but if the player collects them all within the time limit, a Green Star appears on the same spot where the last Green Coin was collected. When a Green Coin is collected, a dark-green numbered text appears based on what depending amount collected. The Green Star Coin also make a distinct sparkly sound when collected with the pitch with each one collected. Green Coins are once again worth one yellow coin and 100 points.
