Coins are the normal currency in My Town. They allow you to buy all the basic buildings.
How to obtain Edit
Obtaining them can be done by gaining levels, selling buildings or gaining money from buildings. Gaining money from buildings is the most common way: after building a building a timer will start. As soon as this timer ends you have the ability to get coins out of it. The longer you wait, the less it will be. After this you can reset the clock.
