Effect

Held item

The Amulet Coin doubles the amount of prize money received after battle if the holder takes part in the battle. It also doubles the amount of coins picked up from Pay Day. In Pokémon Colosseum's Story Mode and Pokémon XD's colosseums, this bonus can be applied to the prize money earned after clearing a set.

Amulet Coin does not stack with Luck Incense or other Amulet Coins; however, it does stack with Happy Hour and Prize Money Power.

Once the Pokémon has participated in battle while holding it, it takes effect; it is unaffected by Klutz and takes effect even if the holding Pokémon faints or the Amulet Coin is removed or negated.

In the anime

An Amulet Coin in the anime

An Amulet Coin appeared in Capacia Island UFO!, where it was found by Ash. Later, when he and Team Rocket entered a UFO belonging to a group of Beheeyem, the Beheeyem told them that they lost an item looking like the Amulet Coin that was a vital part in getting the UFO to fly. Ash gave them the Amulet Coin he found, but it was not the right item. Instead, the Beheeyem sought a similar-looking item, which had been found by James earlier on.

In the anime, the Amulet Coin is regarded as a good luck charm.
