The Coin is an item that has appeared in several Rusty Lake games. It is a small silver disc, with what appears to be an etched portrait on the surface, typical of many coins.
Cube Escape: The LakeEdit
Casting the fishing line with a magnet tied will yield a key. This key opens up one of the cabinet in the Cabin, which contains a coin. It is a part of the pentagram to spawn a Corrupted Soul, when placed on the tree grown out of the fish.
Cube Escape: BirthdayEdit
After Mr. Rabbit shoots Dale's family dead, he leaves a note near the small chest, which now has a silver coin inside its slot. The coin is used as part of a machine, which produces a blue cube needed to travel back in time to before the shooting.
Now, Dale's Grandfather asks Dale to open the chest. The coin must be taken out of the machine and placed into the slot of the chest to unlock it. The pistol inside is given to Dale's Grandfather, who is ready this time and shoots Mr. Rabbit when he tries to break in.
Rusty Lake: RootsEdit
After James dies in 1870, a wake is held in the workshop of the Vanderboom House. There are two coins hidden in the room, one behind a glass jar and one inside a locked cupboard. As a common burial tradition, the coins are placed over his corpse's eyes. He then spits an eye out on his tongue.
Cube Escape: ParadoxEdit
When Dale's parents are shot dead in the past, the player can look inside their present. There is a small locked chest that has a slot for the coin to fit in. The coin is found using the player's future mind and opens the chest to reveal a man statue inside. The statue is used to play a game of chess in order to find the combination to get Harvey's Song.
