Show me the money!

Xenoblade Chronicles is a role-playing game where you have a chance to explore the vast world of Aionios and collect great prizes. One of the main things you'll want is a lot of Nopon Coins, a currency in this world. There are two types of Nopon, Gold and Silver, where the former is much more valuable and challenging to acquire. You can do many useful things with this cash, but first, you'll have to find it.

How to get Silver and Gold Nopon Coins in XC3

There are several ways you can collect Nopon Coins in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. While exploring, you'll come across containers that have some Nopon Coins. But there are other, more dangerous ways to acquire Coins, like defeating some menacing monsters. So, be prepared for tough fights if you want to bask in silver and gold. It'll take time to get to each location, so use fast travel in XC3. Here are the best ways to farm Nopon Coins in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Defeat Unique Monsters to get Nopon Coins in XC3

Vanquishing unique monsters in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is the best way to collect enough Nopon Coins. These monsters are tough cookies, so make sure you're strong enough to take them down.

You have a chance to resolve some conflicts by choosing which side you want to help in Skirmishes. Each side offers you some benefits, and one of them will reward you with Nopon Coins. As you can obtain other rewards from regular fights, always choose Coin. Remember, this is a precious currency in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
