The Community Pin, the last pin

Pins were collectible items in Club Penguin. Every two or three weeks, a new pin was hidden somewhere on Club Penguin Island, and once gone, old pins would never return (although there were a few exceptions). Then, the player could select a pin from their inventory and it would appear on the top left hand corner of their player card. To find a pin, messages from the Ultimate Safe Chat allowed players to ask "Where is the pin?" or "Where did you find that pin?". Some pins were themed for an event that is coming up or going on. In the Yearbooks in the Book Room, if you clicked in the right places, you would be able to view one pin that was hidden for that certain month (except for the 2006-2007 Yearbook). Pins could be seen in the back of a Stamp Book.


In February 2008, Screenhog listed some guidelines on how pins were hidden. Some rules included: pins never being hidden in the exact same spot, they would never be hidden in a room that had a pin hidden in it less than a two months ago, and so on. However, some of these rules have been broken and no longer apply.[1]

Obtaining Pins

Until December 13, 2012, a pin would be obtained by walking on top of it, where a popup window asks if they would like to pick it up. Since then, the popup box has become visible by clicking the pin. The first pin that could be obtained this way, not from a certain event, was the Snowflake Pin.

In addition, throughout the years, several other pins were obtained through certain activities, such as the Christmas Tree Pin, that was available by donating 50 coins to the Club Penguin Times, or the Recycle Pin, which was available after completing the Recycle Hunt.

Main article: Flag

Flags were very similar to pins in that they were displayed in the upper left corner of a penguin's player card. Originally, flags were only available to members on Club Penguin, however they were later released to be available to both non-members and members. Flag pins were bought at the very end of every Penguin Style catalog for 20 coins each. Flags were slightly larger than most pins and were a rounded version of a countries' flag. Together with the Rockhopper's Key Pin and Moss Key Pin, they were the only pins that were permanent.
