Looking for the best Coin Master cards? We're here to help. Our handy guide will look at some of the most effective cards in this popular village-builder and battle sim. Cards are collectible items that you unlock by completing objectives and levelling up your village, and while they may not directly improve your village's stats, it's always nice to build an impressive collection, right?

Our Coin Master cards list will break down the rarest and most exclusive cards in the game, letting you know which ones to unlock. Some of the cards in our Coin Master cards list are incredibly difficult to unlock, so be ready to work hard. Of course, you can unlock Coin Master cards in other ways, particularly geared around the game's social aspects. We'll explain how you can get even more cards with the help of friends.

What are Coin Master cards?

Generally speaking, you can unlock the first wave of Coin Master cards as you make your way through the game. You tend to unlock a new card as you progress through villages, fully upgrading their buildings, and moving on to the next one.

The first card you unlock is at Village 3, meaning you'll have to fully upgrade and complete the forest village and desert village before you get your first card. From there, you'll unlock cards at sporadic intervals as you progress through villages. The next cards unlock at Village 5, Village 7, Village 12, and so on.

Within each set, there are nine unique cards available. If you manage to collect all of these, you're in for a treat: a bonus dose of spins and a chance at unlocking a pet.

The best Coin Master cards

Due to the progression-based nature of Coin Master cards, some of the rarest in the game are those only unlocked later on, up until village 364. However, all cards have a rarity ranking, ranging from Very Rare to Very Low. Here are all the Very Rare Coin Master cards:

  • Martian Lettuce
  • Torero
  • Farmer Feng
  • Barrel Tank

These are the four rarest cards in Coin Master. As such, they're the best ones to add to your collection, as they'll help you stand out from the crowd. We've also compiled a list of all High Rare cards, which are the next step down, but still pretty formidable collectables:

  • Creaky Crow
  • Elder Elk
  • Satyr
  • Hobby Horse
  • Aztec Princess
  • Kettle
  • Santa
  • Smoking Pipe
  • Mythical Tune

As mentioned, these cards won't give you any major gameplay boost, but they will help you build an impressive collection. Equally, you can trade them with other players or exchange them for other cards to bolster your collection. Of course, you get a bonus for collecting all nine cards within a set, too, so you'll definitely want to accrue as many Coin Master cards as possible. Then, you'll get a much-welcomed dose of coins and spins, that you can spend upgrading your current village.

Joker cards are also incredibly rare. That's because although you can come across them quite regularly, they'll expire after a set amount of time. As such, you'll want to make sure you collect them before they expire, and send any duplicates to friends. That way, they can revel in the rarity, too!

How do I get more Coin Master cards?

As such a desirable in-game item, there's no doubt that you'll want to collect as many Coin Master cards as possible. The good news is that there are several ways to get more cards in your collection.

First and foremost, you can unlock cards through the random spins that compile the base of Coin Master's gameplay. Once you reach Village 3 and unlock the first two sets of cards, you'll have a chance of rolling these cards within the random spinner. That's the most common way to get cards, as you accrue spins by waiting for the timer to run out, and spin to your heart's content for coins, raid possibilities, and more.

Of course, there are other ways to get new cards in Coin Master, too. The most effective are coin chests – dedicated loot boxes that'll guarantee you a card in the payout. There's no guarantee that the rewarded cards will be new to your collection, but it does ensure you'll definitely get a card in the payout. You can earn these by exchanging duplicate cards for a chest or by spending coins.

Elsewhere, you can work with other Coin Master players to bolster one another's collections. There are countless Coin Master trading groups, as well as an official page where you can coordinate swaps and help pad out your collection with cards that have eluded you.

Lastly, you can save your coins and spare cards for Card Booms. These are limited-time events where card drop rates are drastically increased. If you've got plenty of spare cash and don't want to level up your village quite yet, then holding out for a Card Boom is the best way to vastly increase your deck.

Where do I see my Coin Master cards?

Luckily, taking a look at your Coin Master cards is very easy to do. It means that you can peruse your collection and look at potential swaps with other players. Here's how to find your cards:

  • On the main Coin Master hub, where you can see your current village, swipe down on the screen. This will take you to the spin menu.
  • In the bottom-left of the screen, you'll see a card icon emblazoned with a crown.
  • Tap this icon and you'll see your card collection. It's worth noting that the card feature isn't accessible on the first village, so if you're new to the game, you'll have to progress a little before you can see it.
  • From here, you can scroll down to see the cards you've unlocked and how many of the nine variants for each card you currently have.
