The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | How to find all quarters for Numismatist trophy

The Last of Us 2 coin locations are going to be hard to pin down. These quarters are so small and there are so many — 32 in fact — scattered around a few of the levels. Getting all of them will get you the Numismatist trophy. A numismatist is someone who studies coins or similar objects. And that will be you once you get them all. Here’s how to find all of the TLOU2 coins. Just be warned that there are heavy spoilers here so don’t read until you’ve completed the Seattle Day 3 chapter.

When you meet back up with Manny and the dog after the boat warehouse, Mel and Abby will be dropped into an area just before having to drop down yet again into a train yard. Don’t do that just yet! Instead explore that area. You’ll see a rectangular building but with no unlocked doors.

The Last of Us 2 All Weapons Guide | Hunting pistol

That’s fine. Just grab a brick and break a window to jump inside like in the above picture.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 1 | On Foot | Indiana

Go inside the building and you will see the Indiana coin on a desk.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 1 | On Foot | Ohio

The Last of Us 2 Training Manual Locations | Seattle Day 1

The Ohio coin is very tricky. Eventually, you’ll have to turn a big crank and it’ll break. You’ll have to boost Mel up and she will open a door for you. Go through there, pick up the ladder, and then lay it down so you can use it as a bridge to get onto the boat like in the above picture. But don’t do it!

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 1 | On Foot | Ohio

Turn around and lay that ladder upright so you can climb the building behind you.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 1 | The Coast | utah

When you get to the top of the ladder, turn around and you’ll see that structure in the above picture instead of jumping off the boat continuing the story. Stay on the boat and go toward the above structure.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 1 | The Coast | Mississippi

Jump in the fountain and grab the Mississippi coin. Someone probably wished upon that coin and you ruined it. Hopefully, that wish wasn’t for a cordyceps cure.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Shortcut | Nevada

Go through that building, progress forward, and jump to some rocks in the water.

Swim to the bottom of the deep end like you never could in sixth grade. The Illinois coin will be in the drain.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Oregon

This one is tricky to find since it is so dark in this hotel so some of these screen shots will have the high contrast mode on (which is helpful for this section). After getting the mask for Lev and you climb down and you sidle across a high ledge, an enemy will shortly jump out of a wall and attack you.

The Last of Us 2 All Weapons Guide | Flamethrower

Continue on until you have to sprint jump down one level. You then either have to walk across a narrow beam or jump across a ledge with a sneaky Clicker on the other side. Now continue until you get to the above hallway. It’s pretty dark, but there are two doors there: one in front that leads down and one on the right that leads to a bathroom. Go through the door in front of you and drop down a level.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Oregon

Once you drop down, turn around and you will get to a room with two Clickers. Kill them or sneak past. You will have to drop down again by that other Clicker on the left in the picture.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Oregon

Once you get out of the elevator shaft, don’t go forward but turn left like you see in the above picture. There is a vending machine. Go examine it.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Wisconsin

The Wisconsin coin should be there (you may have to break the glass with a melee attack first).

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Missouri

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Missouri

This next coin is in the hospital area but not actually inside of the hospital.

To get there, go to the ambulance vehicle right near the gate.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Missouri

Now go into the hallway to the left of the ambulance vehicle, as shown in the picture.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 2 | The Descent | Missouri

The Louisiana coin will be on the ground near a tire.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | Idaho

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | Idaho

Once you get to the island, you’ll eventually have to climb the ladder in the above picture.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | North Carolina

After hopping that fence, you’ll come across a car by a tree, as shown by the red arrow in the picture. Go to it.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | North Carolina

The North Carolina coin is on the ground near the car.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | Montana

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | Montana

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Island | Montana

There will be a ladder around the back of that building. Climb it.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Escape | Arkansas

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Escape | Arkansas

The final coin is after you find Lev again. Once you’re all together, you’ll have to crouch to get into the window in the above picture.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Escape | Arkansas

Continue through that and go ahead until you have to squeeze through a door to get back outside which is where you’ll see a big truck with red text on it. Go left just as you exit the door to where the red arrow is pointing.

The Last of Us 2 Coin Locations | Seattle Day 3 | The Escape | Arkansas

Once you turn left, you’ll see that the Arkansas coin is on the ground near a shopping cart. This should earn you your Numismatist trophy.
