Notes[ | ]

  • Swallowed Penny can also be found by destroying urns and (except in Rebirth) Special ShopkeeperSpecial Shopkeepers.
  • Though similar to the Collectible Piggy Bank iconPiggy Bank item, the Swallowed Penny is not limited to just pennies.
  • (in Afterbirth and Afterbirth †) Unlike Collectible Piggy Bank iconPiggy Bank, playing as Character Keeper iconKeeper with this trinket always drops a coin, allowing semi-infinite life.
    • A trick for farming money when playing as Keeper is to find a room with some static hazard like spikes and taking damage, causing a coin to appear. A penny will only refill life while a nickel will give four cents, and a dime will give nine cents.
    • This trick can also be used to survive multiple uses of a sacrifice room, healing with the dropped coin between each sacrifice.
    • (in Repentance) As it can now give 0 coins when playing as the Keeper, this no longer works. When combined with Collectible Piggy Bank iconPiggy Bank, money will still be gained on average, but it is no longer guaranteed. Using Collectible IV Bag iconIV Bag as the source of damage increases the average amount of coins per damage to 1.5, meaning that it will usually generate a pool of coins that can be used during an unlucky break or for later healing.
