Regional coins first appear in Super Mario Odyssey. They can only be used in their corresponding kingdoms to buy outfits, stickers and souvenirs in the Crazy Cap stores. There are fifty or one hundred located in most kingdoms for a total of one thousand, and their shape and design vary in each kingdom. After being collected, they are replaced with clear replicas which are worth two regular coins. The Cloud Kingdom, Ruined Kingdom, Dark Side, and Darker Side do not have regional coins. When a regional coin is collected for the first time, it makes a sound that resembles the combination of gold coins and Star Bits.

Regional coins reappear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate where the regional coins from the Metro Kingdom, as well as the aforementioned sound effect heard when a new regional coin is collected, can occasionally be seen during Mario's Super Jump Punch in place of regular coins from Super Mario 64 or Star Coins from the New Super Mario Bros. series of games.
