App description: Money is addictive and coins are especially so - shiny gold, silver, nickel, electrum, and copper, all colours, sizes and designs! Find matching pairs of coins in this Mahjong-style puzzle game to unlock all chapters and collect all coins.

This puzzle game is unique, not only does it provide entertainment, but it will also educate you by providing interesting facts. All the coins in the game are real, displaying both historical and current currencies that were in circulation throughout the world - from Ancient times to current day.

The game offers:
Addictive mahjong-like gameplay.
Realistic coin designs of the world currencies.
Chapter collections where all your treasures are stored.
Interesting facts about coins.
Easy to learn but challenging enough gameplay.
3 free chapters with 35 unique coins: Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Britain.
(current version) 2 premium chapters, Spain and Asia with 22 unique coins.
Unlimited premium chapter access and ad free experience with the Premium bundle purchase.


The gameplay and rules are simple:
Each level has a goal to achieve - collect a certain amount of coins of any or specified type.
You can collect coins by selecting a pair of matching coins.
Coins have heads and tails (obverse and reverse) - you can flip them.
The coins can overlap and only top level coins can be collected.
Some levels have a limit on the moves required to achieve the goal.
You have some bonus moves and undo attempts and can purchase more if needed.
After a level has been completed, the game shows the coins you collected and some interesting facts about those coins.
The coins found are saved in a chapter's collection.
Some chapters are free and open after a previous chapter is complete. Some chapters are premium and available only through in game purchase.
When you purchase the Premium bundle, you can access all premium chapters that are available or will become available in the future!

Enjoy the game and let me know if you liked it or email me at feedback@weronalabs.com on what you want to see in the game - this is important for me to plan what I add or change in the game.

Where Mahjong meets coins!

I'm excited to introduce you to a new and addictive mobile game! Think of Mahjong, but instead of tiles, the pieces you play with are a range of realistic coins from different eras and from all around the world. The game is addictive as hell and its free! Meet Coin Match!

The concept of this puzzler is brilliantly simple - just find and match pairs of coins. The goal is to clear the level or collect a certain amount of specific coins. Its quite easy to master the core gameplay and get started. The challenge and real fun comes with the gradual introduction of levels with limited moves where players enjoy solving the puzzles one move at a time. The coins overlap each other and only the coins that are not blocked by other ones can be selected and paired. This requires real tactics and strategies for solving the levels. And of course, every coin has a flip side!

The game currently features 57 unique realistic historical coins, from Ancient Greek Tertatrachmas to contemporary Yens with 77 puzzle levels organised into 5 chapters: Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Britain, Spain and Asia. The first three chapters are free, while the latter two are premium. Each chapter features a Collection where all coins discovered by the player through the game can be reviewed and learned about.

Highly educational with some interesting words in it: Tetradrachm, Quadripartite Incuse, Lampsacus, and many more.

Quite good to play as well. Could be more challenging if there were an option to remove the coin-flip feature, making it necessary to learn the obverse and reverse imprints.

Thank you for the review, Stronsay! I was concerned that the game may be too difficult for many people if the coins don't flip.
Did you manage to find the collection of coins, accessible from the map? It contains all the coins you've found, some people miss it.

I found the coin collection thanks. Its a good feature to have. Would probably help to have a label or icon for the coin collection rather than just the unmarked arrow. Difficulty level seems about right, but I would also like to see an optional higher difficulty. I have just started on Ancient Rome.

Optional levels and varying difficulty?

Hi,
I'm thinking on making some changes in the next version and really want to hear what people think about this idea.
All levels are now sequential - you need to complete all levels in the chapter to start the next one. Some people have a challenge with this.
What i want to change is to make only certain numbers of levels necessary to opener the next chapter (say 8 out of 14), leaving the other levels optional to complete.

What do you think? Do you really want to see more coins or have a gameplay challenge?
