The Nintendo Coin is a special item that appears in Donkey Kong 64.


The Nintendo Coin, along with the Rareware Coin, are needed to get the final Boss Key to free K. Lumsy from his prison. The Nintendo Coin can be won by Donkey Kong by playing the Donkey Kong arcade machine located in Frantic Factory a second time (as the first time results in a Golden Banana). The Nintendo Coin replaces Pauline during the second major play of Donkey Kong.
