How to get Soul Coins in Baldur’s Gate 3

There are currently only 4 Soul Coins for players to obtain in Baldur’s Gate 3 at the moment but this will likely change once the game leaves early access. Each Coin can be obtained by collecting them from various locations.

The first Soul Coin is located at Druid’s Grove and can be obtained from the Tiefling Nadira. Once you arrive at her location you’ll find her being attacked by a BugBearer Assassin – you can either save Nadira by using a ranged weapon to attack the assassin, and she will give you the Soul Coin in thanks, or you can leave her to be assassinated and loot her corpse for the Coin.

The remaining 3 Soul Coins can all be found just underneath The Abandoned Temple. The first Coin is located in the room containing Gas Pits and a trapped sarcophagus. The second Coin is in a side room near the Book of Dead Gods, and the third Coin is located in the Alcove, just to the right of the Jergal Statue. They can be tricky to find even when you know their locations due to their small size however so you may want to zoom in to make sure you pick them up.

As the name suggests, they are created when a soul is bound into a coin and then used as trading currency by devils and their cohorts. They can be traded for a variety of items and resources, and it’s likely players will be able to use the currency as a bargaining chip or bribery option throughout the game.

It’s also important to note that there’s currency no in-game use for Soul Coins during the early access period, however, we’d definitely recommend keeping hold on them until the game’s release as they’re bound to come in handy.
