The Coin (Japanese: コイン Coin) is an unobtainable and dummy item in Pokémon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow. It is normally only used as a hidden item in the Game Corner[1][2] with special code that converts it into an amount of Coins which is then stored in the Coin Case when collected.[3][4]

The hidden Coins are not detected by the Itemfinder[5][6] and, without the Coin Case, they cannot be interacted with at all, unlike regular hidden items.

There is a bug in the conversion process that renders the 40 hidden Coins unused since the player receives 20 Coins instead.

As a dummy item, using it will always return Professor Oak's "OAK: (PLAYER)! This isn't the time to use that!" message.
