As mentioned earlier, Coins are an unlockable currency that players can collect in Sonic Origins. Notably, Players can only collect Coins in one of two ways: by playing any of the games in Anniversary mode or by completing missions in Mission Mode.

For those unaware, Sonic Origins will feature both Anniversary and Classic Modes for each of the four games that come as part of the collection. 

This means you won't need to replay one level over and over to farm Coins needlessly. Instead, you will have choices between missions or any four games to play on Anniversary Mode to collect as many Coins as you wish.

How to use Coins in Sonic Origins

The Coins in Sonic Origins give you one of two perks to use in the game. The first is when playing any of the Special stages in Anniversary Mode, allowing you to use a Coin to retry the mission instantly if you fail it at any point.
