"An old, commemorative coin."
— Inventory description
Antique Coin (アンティークコイン antīkukoin ) is an item in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
Antique Coins are used to open locked bird cages. In Easy and Normal modes, the cages are initially located in the Yard area inside Zoe's trailer, and then they are moved to the Swamp area in the Mine Office with all progress made on unlocking them carried over, and only contain optional items. Steroids can be unlocked for 3 coins, Stabilizer for 5 coins, and the 44 MAG for 9 coins.
On Madhouse, the Assault Coin and Iron Defense Coin become available for purchase for 8 and 7 Antique Coins, respectively, alongside the Scorpion Key, now requiring 3 Antique Coins for purchase instead of being found in the basement. The total value of all items in Madhouse is 35 coins, and as only 33 are available in the game, Ethan cannot purchase all 6 items on Madhouse.
All antique coins can stack in a single inventory slot.
