An Event Coin (Japanese: イベントコイン) is any of the collectible coins used in Trading Card Game duels in Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!.

The Event Coins can be obtained by the protagonist, Mark or Mint. These coins are used as proof of achievements within the game, much like Gym Badges from the core series or the Master Medals from the previous TCG Game Boy game. Besides marking achievements, the player may choose one of their coins to use in duels for coin flips in place of their original coin. The appearance and purpose of these coins mimic the real-life collectible coins.
