The Nopon Coin Xchange is introduced in chapter 4, but to unlock it, you need to complete a quest given to you by a Nopon called Burrburr and his secretary Seekseek. To find them, you need to reach the Sage’s Garden.

The Sage’s Garden is located in the Fornis region, in the Dannagh Desert. To traverse through some obstacles, you need Teach in your party, whose ability will let you pass through quicksand. First, head to Raptor Perch, located on the Eastern side of the map. Then, using Teach’s passive exploration skill, you can cross the quicksand to reach this area.

Finally, after reaching Raptor Perch, enter the cave network leading to the mountains. This is the Milio Trick Caves. This cave is filled with considerably hard monsters and bosses, in addition to two puzzles. The monsters here consist of spiders around level 20 and can dish out a lot of damage together, including the bosses. So make sure to have your healers and healing items ready.

The locked gates are opened either by placing orbs on the doors or clearing the area of enemies. Opening them is not hard, and you’ll automatically know what to do as you reach the gates. Exploring through this network of caves, you will finally reach the final area, called Sage’s Garden. Look for a door here through which you’ll find the Nopons, Seekseek, and Burrburr.

Talk to them, and they’ll explain how Nopon Coin Xchange works. Moreover, the ‘Thrill of the Hunt’ quest also begins.

To complete the quest, you need to give Seekseek 40 Silver Nopon Coins and buy something from their Xchange shop. You will probably have enough of them to complete the quest as you reach here.

Collecting Nopon Coin in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Nopon coins are found all over Aionios. There are two types, Silver and Gold Nopon Coins. The Silver ones are common and hence, also less valuable than the Gold ones. Find Nopon Coins in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 by opening the golden chests. Furthermore, complete skirmishes and quests to obtain them as well.

You can carry at most 99 Nopon Coins, so make sure to spend them at Xchange stores, or you will be missing out on more coins. On the other hand, if you have a surplus, you can use Nopon Coins in cooking and Gem crafting, Collectopaedia Cards, and most importantly, increasing Hero Class levels, but you can also increase class level through battles, so don’t waste it unless it’s an emergency.

Additionally, you can exchange some useful accessories with these coins in Sage’s Domicile in the Fornis Region. You can get a few items for Gold Coins and some with Silver. Of them, the most useful ones are the following:

  • Memory Locket (99 Gold): Allows reviving allies even when not in a Healer role.
  • Nopon Strap (80 Silver): 10% chance to keep recharge when using Art.
  • Rigid Support (90 Silver): On blocking, boosts recharge of one Art at random by 10%
  • Expansion Holder (60 Silver): Extends area of effect of attack Arts which have one by 50%

Nevertheless, we suggest using these valuable coins to buy rare and powerful items to make your party stronger. You will also be saving a lot of money.


You will be rewarded with Nopo Coins after completing Monster Skirmishes, but you’ll get only one. So try to complete skirmishes wherever you find them.


Containers around the map will have Nopon Coins in them; as you explore, they will appear on your mini-map.
