Three star coins are found in every level of the game. While many of the coins are easily seen through the game play, some are difficult to get to, and some are difficult to find. Read this article to find out where to get all the star coins in Worlds 5 and 6.

    World 5-1

    Mario in Propeller Suit   Coin 1: Look for the brown spot of land near the giant green shell under the item changing block. Hip slam to push it down, and grab the coin inside the green shell.

    Coin 2: You will see another large green shell. Drop down into the water at the right of the shell and swim into it. You will now be behind it so you can grab the coin inside the shell.

    Coin 3: Toward the end of the level, you will see a green pipe on the ground, with a green shell in the wall. The wall is a fake. Use the vine to swing into the wall, and use the POW in the shell to get the coin to drop down.

    World 5-2

    Coin 1: The first coin is too high for you to reach, but you will see a three tiered area of land. At the bottom tier, you can walk to the left to find a hidden POW that will bring the coin down to where you can reach it.

    Coin 2: The coin appears to be out of reach, underground. Stand to the right of the coin until you see a "Wiggler." Now you can jump on it and reach the coin.

    Coin 3: Toward the end of the underground area, jump off the Wiggler when you see the three bats. Jump onto that land and run to the right so you can take the pipe. Grab a propeller suit and grab the coin.

    World 5-3

    nsmb characters2   Coin 1: This coin is out of reach, so you will either have to bounce on the enemies to get it, or use a Penguin Suit or an Ice Flower to freeze the enemies and use them as stairs to get to the coin.

    Coin 2: Shortly after the check point, you will see the star coin in an area blocked off by bricks. Use a Koopa shell to bust the bricks and open the pathway to the star coin.

    Coin 3: This star coin is near the end of the level, between two falling panels. Stand on the left one until it falls into the coin, being ready to jump at the last second to land safely on the right one.

    World 5-M

    Coin 1: Grab this coin when the walls are all the way to the right and get ready to jump to safety.

    Coin 2: This coin will also be located in an area of spiked walls. When the walls are all the way to the left, you can jump up and grab the coin.

    Coin 3: At the top of the section of spiked walls, underneath the Boss door, there is a section of blocks you'll need to bust to get to the coin. Wait until the wall goes all the way to the right, bust the blocks, jump up and get the coin.

    World 5-4

    bowser   Coin 1: You can either bounce on the enemies to get this one, use a propeller, or use an ice flower to make steps up to the coin.

    Coin 2: When you see the POW, grab it, but don't use it until you see two coins in the sky, when they are above the raft. When you use the POW here, the star coin will drop.

    Coin 3: Near the end of the level on the raft, you will see the coin encased in bricks. Throw the Bob-Ombs to bust the bricks and jump up to get the coin.

    World 5-G

    Coin 1: Head to the very far right in the second room. Look for the elevated floor. Run to the right through the wall underneath it and you will find the coin.

    Coin 2:You won't be able to get this coin on the same run through as the first. The second time, in the first room, you will need to drop down through a couple of openings to get to another room. You are in the right room if you see water. Swim all the way to the right to grab the coin.

    Coin 3: Start the level a third time to get the last coin. Fall down the first opening, but jump over the second one so you don't go back to where you were when you got the second star coin. Fall through the third opening and take the working door. There will be two circles of Boos, and the coin will be over the second one. Jump to grab the coin when there is a break in the Boos, and exit to the right.

    World 5-5

    marioandyoshi   Coin 1: This coin is difficult to get and survive. You need to stand on the platform to the left. Jump to grab the coin when one of the green things is there to catch you.

    Coin 2: After the checkpoint, you will see it. It will be easiest to get to if you have a propeller suit, but can be done by bouncing off the enemies.

    Coin 3: Grab the POW, but do not use it until you see 10 coins forming two "V" shapes. Stand on the back of a green thing, directly under the second V. Throw the POW, but be careful not to throw it over the edge. This will cause the star coin to fall right on top of you.

    World 5-C

    Coin 1: The easiest way to get this coin is to use a Propeller, but if you do not have one, you can slide down the wall on one side and wall jump to grab the coin.

    Coin 2: You will see a grate wheel. Instead of crawling toward the bottom like it looks like you need to, crawling straight up the left side will lead you to a hidden door. You will find the star coin inside this door.

    Coin 3: This one is hard in terms of timing because you need to jump from the grate on the left of the star coin, through the coin, and grab the grate on the right.

    World 6-1

    mariowiicharacters   Coin 1: You will see the coin over one of the guys that throws stones. You can technically use the stones to get up to the coin, but this is much easier if you have a propeller suit.

    Coin 2: This one is easy to get. Just jump through the platforms, as this willl be in an obvious place.

    Coin 3: You will need a propeller to get to this coin, as it is located near the end of the level, toward the exit of the last cave.

    World 6-2

    Coin 1: This coin is in a partially hidden area. When you pass a diamond shaped hole, you will be able to see one corner of the coin. You will need to stomp on the Koopa past this point and use its shell to break the bricks so you can slide down and get it.

    Coin 2: Though there is probably a way to get this coin without using a Propeller suit, I've not figured it out. You'll need a propeller suit to get to the coin, located between two plants and green pipes holding the plants. It will be after the half way point for the level.

    Coin 3: On the second piece of rotating land near the end of the level, wait for the green piep to make its way to you. Then take it down and hit the P button. This will create the platforms you need to get to the star coin.

    World 6-3

    newsupermariobroswii   Coin 1: Near the beginning of the level, you will see a plant in a pipe that rises and falls. Get rid of the plant so you can stand on its pot. When it gets to its highest point, wall jump to the right to grab the coin.

    Coin 2: Further on in the level, you will see a split. Go up and you'll see a repeat situation where you will need to get rid of the plant, ride the pot and jump to get to the star coin.

    Coin 3: Two open pathways will come down from the ceiling. Break the bricks on the path to the right. Wall jump and you will get the coin.

    World 6-M

    Coin 1: Not too long after you start climbing, you will see a wall. On the very far left, there will be two notches. Go to the second notch, the deeper one. This will take you down to the coin.

    Coin 2: After the check point, you will see the coin. You will have to run and jump and then do a wall jump to get the coin, but it is fairly easy to do.

    Coin 3: Look for the area where there are several platforms moving from side to side. Stay to the right as you move through and wall jump up into the narrow pathway.

    World 6-4

    smb disc label   Coin 1: You will need a propeller to get to this one. It will be in plain sight above a red Koopa.

    Coin 2: You will need a propeller or Yoshi to get to this one. After the check point, there will be a gap. Use Yoshi's jump or the propeller to get down into the gap, where there is a hidden pipe. Enter the pipe and hit the POW to get the coin down.

    Coin 3: You will need a propeller or Yoshi to get to this one. Some platforms will be tied together with a rope.

    World 6-5

    Coin 1: The coin will be down in a gap toward the beginning of the level. You can safely jump down and grab it, but prepare to wall jump to get out.

    Coin 2: This star coin is located after the half way point. You will have to slide down a ledge to get it, but prepare to jump back out quickly because there will be an enemy lurking.

    Coin 3: Look for the row of 4 ? blocks. In the center above those blocks, there is a hidden block with a vine. Hit it and take the vine up. There's a propeller block you will need to be able to get this coin. Once you've gotten that, jump on the block with wings and jump up and to the right to grab the coin.

    World 6-6

    Coin 1: Grab the POW, but hold onto it until the far side of the raft. You will see a pipe with a plant coming out of it. Use the POW here and the star coin will fall onto the raft.

    Coin 2: You will find a spring after the checkpoint. You should grab this and put it on your raft. Look for the coin using the light. When you see it, jump on the spring to get up to the coin. Using the propeller suit is another option, too.

    Coin 3: You will need to continue using the light to find a propeller block. The spring is how you can get it. Carry the block over until you see one brick above you. Use the propeller to get to it and then run to the left to get the coin.

    World 6-C

    supermariowiilevel   Coin 1: Look for a series of tilting bricks that move along with the last platform. Ride the last set of tilting blocks, jumping on the bricks above them. The Star Coin will be in the middle.

    Coin 2: You will see another set of titling platforms. Look for the platform with three ? bricks above it. Jump on the two left most blocks, then jump up again to reach the star coin.

    Coin 3: This coin is above the last platform and will require jumping at the last second, or going back to get a running jump to grab the coin.
