Resident Evil 7 Collectibles Guide: List of all Antique Coins and where to find them
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard from Capcom is a true return to form for the series, mixing horror, a first-person perspective, and an intriguing story in one amazing package.
It also features numerous types of collectibles to discover. This guide features screenshots and descriptions of every Antique Coin collectible, which help you unlock new weapons, items, and achievements!
As a special bonus for Xbox gamers, Resident Evil 7 also happens to be an Xbox Play Anywhere title. If you buy the game digitally from the Windows Store, you get access to both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions, with full cross-save support.
Pelicans in your Pocket
Antique Coins are a collectible with a purpose. At two points in the game (the Trailer safe room in the Yard and the Swamp safe room), they can be exchanged for three items: Steroids (3 coins), a Stabilizer (6 coins), and the 44 Magnum pistol (9 coins).
There are 18 Antique Coins on Easy or Normal difficulty. Madhouse difficulty has 33 coins of its own to collect, but this guide focuses on the Easy/Normal coins. If you collect a coin but die before saving the game or reaching a checkpoint, you'll need to get it again for it to count towards the 'Pelicans in your Pocket' Achievement. It requires all 18 coins to be collected in one playthrough.
We've divided the collectibles by the location in which they're found, so you'll always be able to tell if you've gone too far or need to backtrack.
Naturally, some of these Antique Coin locations might involve mild spoilers.
Antique Coins in the Guest House
The first area of the game, and one that we'll revisit at the end as well. As you play through, be sure to check out our comprehensive Achievement Guide, Files Guide, and Mr. Everywhere Statues Guide so you don't miss any Achievements or collectibles along the way.
Antique Coin #1
The first coin requires special action be taken during the Derelict House Footage videotape sequence before picking the coin up in the present. As soon as the videotape starts, take a few steps back and get the Lockpick from the ground. Enter the Guest House and use the Lockpick on the drawer in the kitchen.
After completing the videotape and before entering the secret passage, head back to the Kitchen as Ethan. You can now open the drawer to find the coin.
Antique Coins in the Main House
Survive the boss battle in the Guest House Attic and Ethan will end up in the Main House, a major area that he'll be revisiting throughout the game.
Antique Coin #2
After Jack starts chasing you for the first time, quickly find the Hatch Key at the east side of the hallway. Take the hatch in the Pantry to the underground passage. The Antique Coin sits on top of a riding lawnmower.
Antique Coin #3
After the Garage boss battle, take the Ox Statuette and use it to enter the Main Hall. Inside, walk along the wall and you'll discover the coin inside of a drawer in the northeastern corner.
Antique Coin #4
On the second floor, enter the Recreation Room from the southern entrance. Straight ahead, you'll find the coin on a small shell beside a basket (right beside Mr. Everywhere #4).
Antique Coin #5
On the second floor, head west from the Recreation Room to the Bathroom. Check the toilet bowl for a shiny, totally germ-free coin.
Antique Coin #6
From the Drawing Room (where you found Mr. Everywhere # 5), take the western door to the unnamed room just before the Monitoring Room. You'll find the coin in an ashtray on the table.
Antique Coin #7
In the Basement Processing Area, head west past the Incinerator Room door. Pry open the corrugated room divider. Immediately left from that divider, you'll find a wooden pallet leaning against the wall and the coin in a nearby hole in the wall. Get the Processing Area Map from the nearby shelf while you're there.
Antique Coins in the Yard
After defeating the Morgue boss, you can use the three Dog's Heads to open the back door of the Main House and enter the Yard.
Antique Coin #8
Right when you enter the Yard from the back door of the Main House, step off the porch and turn right. You'll find the coin in a planter besides the steps. Be sure to grab the first Repair Kit while you're out here, too.
Antique Coin #9
Inside the Trailer safe room, it's sitting right next to the birdcage on the table that costs nine coins to open. How convenient!
Antique Coins in the Old House
After accepting the phone call in the Trailer, head northeast through the Yard to the Old House. You can build the Burner Flamethrower in this area, as well as take the first step towards acquiring the Grenade Launcher.
Antique Coin #10
Take the passage from the Dining Room to the Cellar (where we found Mr. Everywhere #9). You'll find the coin sitting on a cart just before the door to the Cellar.
Antique Coin #11
Once you have the Crank, head to the boardwalk area where you got the Burner Nozzle. Roast the insect nest, and then use the Crank to raise the northern bridge. You'll find the coin inside the outhouse on top of the toilet – just right of the chest that contains the Crow Key.
Antique Coin #12
On the second floor, in the room with the scale attached to a door, check the chest of drawers in the corner for the coin.
Antique Coins in the Testing Area
Once you get the Blue and Yellow Key Cards from the Main House, go back to the Yard and use the keys on the western door to enter the Testing Area. Note that you can't return to the Main House or Old House once you're inside.
Antique Coin #13
In the first floor western corner room that contains four tripwire bombs, first disarm the bombs. Then check the drawer in the table for a coin. You'll also find the third Steroids and an exploding crate in the nearby locker.
Antique Coin #14
After defeating the Fat Molded boss, take the elevator to the second floor. Immediately outside of the room with the burnt corpse (the Rest Area, where we found File #22), the coin awaits on a wall shelf.
Antique Coins in the Wrecked Ship
After leaving the Testing Area and defeating the Boat House boss, you'll make a decision that affects which ending you'll receive. Next comes the Wrecked Ship area. The first portion of the ship has two highly missable Antique Coins – you won't be able to return after progressing further into the area.
Antique Coin #15
The Wrecked Ship portion of the game starts on floor S3. As soon as you reach S1, prepare to look for this coin. From the Office, drop down into the hatch after the flashback occurs. In the crawlspace, turn right at the first fork. The coin lies at the end of the path.
Antique Coin #16
After the crawlspace, you'll emerge on floor S2. Climb the ladder there that leads to the first floor. Immediately following the ladder climb, you'll jump into a pool of water. The coin is hidden beside a plant in the northwestern corner of the water.
Antique Coin #17
This coin is found inside the locked toolbox on the third floor, just past the elevator shaft. To get it, you'll first have to retrieve the Lockpick on the second floor.
After you've solved the painting puzzle in the Lounge on the second floor, head out of the Dining Room and straight into the northeastern room with the ladder. Climb the ladder, and take the Lockpick from the orange box. Shoot the Mr. Everywhere statue (#17), and then make your way back to the locked box in the Control Room of the third floor.
Antique Coin #18
Near the end of the Wrecked Ship, you'll battle a Fat Molded in the No. 1 Engine Room on floor S2. The hallway immediately after that room has a box on the wall that must be opened with Corrosives. You'll find the coin inside.
That's the last Antique Coin on Easy and Normal playthroughs! If you're hunting down all the collectibles, you still have five Files and three Mr. Everywhere statues left to go before the end of the game.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a game that fans of horror games won't want to miss. And because it's an Xbox Play Anywhere title, Windows 10 gamers won't have to miss out either.
