Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person action game where you fight a variety of monsters. The world has been thrown into chaos by an ancient evil from another dimension. As one of the last remnants of humanity, you set out alone or alongside up to two other survivors to face down hordes of deadly enemies. The end-goal is to carve a foothold, rebuild, and retake what was lost.

Just like the Tarnished Ring, there's an item in Remnant: From the Ashes called the Strange Coin. It's unclear where to find it, because it just appears as a random drop in the world. I found it while randomly exploring the first area of the game. Make sure you look ever chest and pillage every corpse.

Remnant: From the Ashes Xbox One review — Is it worth buying?

If you take it back to Ace, the person who sells resources like Iron at the base, she'll give you a revolver and other items. Best of all, you'll get a nice Xbox Achievement with that. The revovler might not be the best weapon in the game, but it still packs quite the punch. It's good for taking on lower-level enemies.
