How to Get Coins in Madden 18 Mobile

You'll need coins to upgrade your players and buy certain packs in Madden Mobile 18. Here are some tips on coin making methods.

Madden 18 Mobile is a standalone app for iOS and Android devices that lets you take to the gridiron on the go. While it doesn't provide a comprehensive Madden 18 experience, it does bring to your fingertips the game's Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) mode. This is where you'll collect players to craft your fantasy dream team while taking on single-player and multiplayer challenges. 

But to be the best, you'll need to upgrade your star players and buy certain card packs as you progress through seasons, leagues, and head-to-head matchups. And to do this, you'll need coins -- one of Madden 18 Mobile's in-game currencies. 

There are several coin making methods and strategies for getting coins in Madden 18 Mobile. Some of them are organic, while some will take a little bit of creativity to pull off. Here's how to maximize your time and effort while getting them. 

Earning coins in Brady Camp Madden 18 Mobile

Getting Coins in Madden Mobile 18 

When you first boot up Madden 18 Mobile, you'll start with 400 coins -- but the game will immediately make you spend those coins on the Madden NFL Starter Pack. However, even though you'll have to start from scratch when it comes to coins, the game will take you through a sequence of tutorial challenges that will not only teach you how to play and what each mode has to offer, but it will also give you coins for completing challenges. 

By the end of your first set of Brady Camp challenges, you should have 2,850 coins -- 2,100 for reaching level 2 and 250 for completing each drill. As you continue through the game's rather extensive tutorial, you'll make coins and spend coins, ending up with about 12,000 coins when all's said and done. 

As you move forward, you'll find that almost every activity gives you coins. Some give more coins than others, so to maximize your efficiency, make sure to look at the coin reward icon at the middle left of each event card and choose the ones with the highest returns on investment first. Here are the events you can complete to get a fistful of coins.

Madden 18 Mobile Live Events

Live Events 

This coin making method comes with a hefty RNG. These events rotate between every few hours (at the shortest) and every other week (at the longest). Some will only net you 60 coins -- but others will net you upwards of 480 coins. And the best part about these Live Events is that you can repeat them as many times as you want within the allotted time frame, which you can find via a countdown timer at the top of each card. 

Head-to-Head Matchups

Another way to get coins is to take on head-to-head matchups. These games pit you against other real-life Madden 18 Mobile players in six-drive contests of superiority. These matchups are worth it, though, because each drive you complete with a touchdown nets you 50 coins, while simply initiating your first head-to-head matchup will get you 150 coins. 

Madden Mobile 18 Season

This mode takes you through the NFL season, with each quarter being one minute in length. Each game takes 50 energy to play, but you'll be well-rewarded for the investment because each quarter you complete will give you a whopping 200 coins. That's 800 coins for a single game. Throw achievements on top of that, and you'll be rolling in coins in no time.

Madden Mobile 18 Achievements

One of the best ways to get coins fast is by completing achievements, which will get you anywhere between 150 and 1,000 coins for each completion. The only downside to getting coins via achievements is that eventually, you'll run out of achievements -- even though some of them are tiered with multiple achievements in a set. To view what achievements you already have, as well as your progress toward individual achievements, click the home icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen, then click the trophy icon directly under "Madden NFL". There you can filter your progress by game mode. 

Longshot Mode 

Madden 18 Mobile also brings along Madden 18's Longshot story mode. This version isn't anywhere near as robust as its console counterpart, but it will provide you with coins for leading Devin Wade through various on-the-field scenarios. Completing most challenges will get you in the neighborhood of 50 coins. This is an easy coin making method. 

Madden Mobile 18 Leagues

Honestly, I'm not sure if participating in Leagues will net you coins or not -- or even do it efficiently -- because I've not been able to join a league yet. However, I'm sure they do and will update this entry accordingly once I've been drafted into a league. 

Madden 18 Mobile Auction House

Getting More Coins via the Gold-Player Auction Method in Madden Mobile 18

There's no way around it: this method of getting coins in Madden 18 Mobile is a bit like gaming the system. But since it's currently baked into the game, we'll call it more of a workaround. 

To take advantage of this method, you'll first need to buy two gold-level players by going to the Madden 18 Mobile Marketplace and choosing the Auction option. Here, you can filter and search for only Gold-level Players. Some of these players may cost upwards of 10,000 coins, but (hopefully), you'll make that back in just a few seconds. 

After you've bought two Gold-level Players, head over to the Sets tab, which is located at the bottom of the Home Menu. Underneath the Front Office tab, scroll down to the Large Quicksell option. Here, you'll sell your two Gold-level Players and get a Large Quicksell Pack in return. 

This pack will contain up to five cards, all of which will have a Quicksell coin value associated with them. Some may be of relatively low values, but some will be upwards of 20,000 coins or more. In fact, I tried this method and invested 6,000 coins into two Gold-level Players and got an ROI of about 16,750 coins. 

Selecting Player Type in Auction House

Getting More Coins via the Bronze-Player Auction Method in Madden Mobile 18

For this method, you'll want to head over to the Madden 18 Mobile Marketplace and once again go to Auctions. Here, you'll want to click Search at the top of the screen and then go to the Type option (at the middle-left of the Search pop up screen) and choose Bronze Player. If you want to make things easier, uncheck the Include Collectibles box so you'll only see Bronze Players. 

Once you've done that, you'll want to set the min/max for your Bid Price to 100 coins (min) and 101 coins (max). Then you'll want to go into the Auction and place bids on at least 10 Bronze-level Players. 

Once you've won 10 players, you'll want to go over to the Sets tab and choose the Bronze Gameplan option. Here, you'll sell all 10 of your Bronze Players and get a Bronze-level Collectible, such as Run Play, which you can sell for upwards of 10,000 coins on the Marketplace. 


Of course, there are other methods to get coins fast in Madden 18 Mobile, but these are some the easiest and most efficient ways currently out there. Let us know in the comments which method you prefer -- or tell us if you know of a better method and we'll add it to the list!
