Notes[ | ]

  • (except in Rebirth) Unlocking Sticky Nickels is strictly speaking a downgrade, as they replace normal nickels, though the sticky ones are rare enough to not make a severe difference.
    • Although Edmund McMillen has stated that Sticky Nickels should replace pennies,[1] this is not how they are actually implemented.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Booster Pack #5 added a green glow to Lucky Pennies, making them easier to spot. This was from this Steam Workshop mod by piber20.
  • (except in Rebirth) Boss Ultra Greed ingameUltra Greed and his statue cannot pick up Sticky Nickels until they have been unstuck by an explosion, thus negating some difficulty from the fight.
    • During the Ultra Greed fight, if a Sticky Nickel drops, Ultra Greed will be continuously drawn to it.
  • (in Repentance) Sticky Nickels visibly stick to the ground upon spawning, making them easier to distinguish from ordinary nickels.
  • (in Repentance) In the unlikely event that a Sticky Nickel is present during the Boss Bumbino ingameBumbino fight, the boss will try to pick the coin up in futility, making him distracted and thus negating much of the difficulty of the fight.
  • (in Repentance) Collectible Sack Head iconSack Head can cause a Golden Penny to spawn a sack instead of another Golden Penny.
  • The probabilities in the table refer to the kind of coin that is generated by the game when a coin is spawned with a sub-type of 0 (i.e. a random coin).
