I've read here somewhere that there should be 333 total star coins in the game. I've beaten every level with both M & L, with the gold flag, including World 8-Crown. And, AFAIK I got every star coin from the mystery boxes. The only thing I can't say for sure is that I hit all the mystery boxes as soon as they "re-upped" ... I might have played a level or two before noticing that they were active again. But whenever I did the boxes, I never missed getting a coin whether it was new or "old" (i.e. clear).
Anyone have an idea why I would still be missing 5? Is there anything I can do about it now?

That's impressive, but you'll have to replay the game from the scratch.

Lol, not! I am only kidding

I am still on the special world-4, haven't played it for a while. Skipped a lot of coins from both the world.

The mystery boxes respawn everyday and there are new ones sometimes so you get new coins. I've got 349 so far.


Oh. Well, that blows a hole in that 333 total I read about. Thanks for the info.

Every street pass you made, you got a new Mystery Box with gold coin on it.

So basically there's no limit for Star Coins in this game? Just get as many as you want from StreetPass, [?] boxes and the like?
That's dumb.

It's considered "completing" the star coins quest once you've collected all 3 in each level (290, I think?). Anything you get from mystery boxes, streetpass, etc after that is considered extra, and there's no limit.

There's a limited number of mystery box variations. You'll notice that, if you get the same one twice (can happen via StreetPass), you won't be able to get the star coin again, meaning there is a limited number of star coins. I had 342 before I gave the game to my nephew.
