Resident Evil 7's Antique Coins are hidden collectibles that you can use to unlock upgrades via bird cages in the Trailer and other special save points. The major upgrades you can get are a health upgrade, a reload speed upgrade, and a magnum, one of the most powerful weapons in the game. This Resident Evil 7 guide will tell you where to find all 18 Antique Coins.
First, though, a note on the Dirty Coin you can get by solving the mysteries in the playable teaser Beginning Hour: The Dirty Coin can be used as an extra Antique Coin towards unlocking upgrades. That makes it well worth having, so fire up the Resi 7 demo and get the Dirty coin before you start. You should also open a new tab for our lovingly crafted Resident Evil 7 walkthrough, which will cover all the various terrifying elements that aren't collectible-based.
Also note this guide details how to get all 18 Antique Coins in Easy and Normal difficulty mode. On Madhouse mode, the number of coins is increased to 33 and their locations are almost all different. To find these coins, check out Resident Evil 7: How to Find All 33 Antique Coins in Madhouse Mode.
