Rusty coins are the currency used in Dungeoneering and were introduced to the game with the money pouch replacing the normal coins previously used in Daemonheim to make the difference between Daemonheim coins and normal coins more clear.
The only use coins have in Daemonheim is to buy items from the Smuggler. You can ask about them from the Smuggler, he says: "Oh, they're nothing. You can give them all to me, if you want.", and the player refuses.
Rusty coins, unlike regular coins, can't be stored in the player's money pouch. Therefore, when you're doing a dungeon, one of your inventory slots will be dedicated to storing your money, similarly to how regular coins had to be kept in the player's inventory until the money pouch came out.
- Gold cannot actually rust; only oxidise. In order to rust, a compound would have to contain iron elements. Therefore, as stated in the FAQ for the update which released them, the coins in Daemonheim are not composed of gold, but rather of a material similar to novite (or novite itself).
- The examine, which is "They make the world go round" is a reference to the common idiom used in the real world, "Money makes the world go round".
- Along with the update on 16 January 2012, they have changed to a bright orange colour, as the previous grey colour was not visible on some floors.
