Salary and Treasure!
A coin is the main currency of Club Penguin Island and it is used as a legal tender. They can be unlocked and obtained through mini games, competitions, or salaries. Coin codes are similar to coins, the difference being that coin codes are in real life (found on Club Penguin merchandise) and they allow you to redeem items online. Fluffy the Fish is engraved in all of the standard 1 coins.
You can get 500 coins when you create a penguin. You can earn more by these ways:
Varying amounts of coins ranging from 100 to 5,000 can be obtaining from entering codes or using real-word books.
Coins are earned by playing single or multiplayer Games. Almost every game (excluding Card-Jitsu games but including Snow, Fall Fair games and formerly newspaper games) provides you with coins after playing it. You can also receive coins by digging in the Gold Mine. The coins you earn in games is equal to 10% of your total score, and if you have all the stamps for that game then it is doubled. Arguably, the best two games to play to get quick coins are Cart Surfer and Puffle Roundup.
Salary for Special Roles

Being a tour guide (and formerly a Secret Agent will earn you 250 coins automatically for each "job" every month). The 'check' is sent to these penguins via postcard monthly starting from May 1, 2009. Now, you can gain 350 coins for being an EPF Agent each month.
Coins are earned by playing games and taking part in special activities, such as Igloo and competitions. Players can use coins to buy colors, Puffles, Puffle supplies, Clothing, Igloo Upgrades, furniture, and player card backgrounds. Coins can also be used to send post cards.

A "ten" coin is shaped like a normal Club Penguin coin but is worth 10 coins. It is also larger than a normal coin. It is found exclusively in the games Jet Pack Adventure and Jetpack Boost, and can also be found when digging for coins in the Cave Mine. It may be a feasible hypothesis to make judgement that "Ten" coins are merely an item which can be traded for ten coins rather than a currency in itself.
When penguins traveled back in time during the Prehistoric Party 2013 and the Prehistoric Party 2014, coins and dinosaur eggs can be seen in the game Dino Dig. The coin was dark blue with a touch of green and was shaped like a pentagon with a hole in the middle.
You were formerly able to transfer coins from three games and currently one app.
- Club Penguin Elite Penguin Force let you use DS Connection to transfer coins.
- Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force: Herbert's Revenge also let you use DS Connection to transfer coins.
- Club Penguin Game Day! let you use Nintendo Wii Connection to transfer coins.
- The Club Penguin (app) automatically transfers coins to your account when you finish playing games.
Coins for Change
Since the Christmas Party 2007, there has been a Coins for Change program during every Holiday Party. In the end, more than 2.5 million penguins donated in excess of 2 billion virtual coins they earned playing games on Club Penguin to support the environment, children's health or children in developing countries. Through their virtual donations, the kids directed how much of a $1 million cash donation went to three charitable organizations.
