One of my favorite parts of Sea of Thieves is unlocking new cosmetics. While many can be purchased with in-game currency, some are locked behind premium purchases using Ancient Coins. When I saw the Monkey Island cosmetics, I just had to the have them. But this meant I needed to get Ancient Coins.
All ways to get Ancient Coins in Sea of Thieves
The Pirate Emporium
Ancient Coins can be purchased from the in-game shop, The Pirate Emporium. This gives various bundles of Ancient Coins, which are:
- 150 – $1.99
- 550 – $5.99
- 1,000 – $9.99
- 2,550 – $22.99
- 4,250 – $34.99

You can also purchase Ancient Coins through the Steam Store, Xbox Store, and Windows PC Store. This will be applied to the account tied to the store, so verify that it is the correct account. The prices and coin bundles are the same as above.
There is a way to get Ancient Coins for free. This is by defeating Ancient Skeletons. These appear randomly, but are quite rare, making it less reliable. However, if you can defeat an Ancient Skeleton within 20 seconds, you will be rewarded with a number of Ancient Coins ranging from 100 to 800, with larger amounts being more rare.
Finally, some season rewards will give you Ancient Coins. This can be seen in the Season Pass. You must reach the requried level to unlock these rewards, but this can help you get Ancient Coins. Starting at the eighth level, you’ll receive a small purse of Ancient Coins every 10 levels thereafter. If you purchase the Season’s Plunder Pass, you’ll receive a much more substantial purse of Ancient Coins for every 10th level you reach, starting at the fifth level.
