The Last of Us 2 coins number 32 in total, collectibles tied to American states hidden in different areas, and a trophy for finding them all. However, being coins, they're pretty small and difficult to find - or at least they were until we came along to help with that issue. Our comprehensive guide will tell you where to find all the The Last of Us 2 coins as you go, ticking off the collectibles and levels as you play. 

SPOILER WARNING: This guide picks up near the halfway mark of The Last of Us 2 and continues through a big chunk of the latter half. As a result it's spoiler territory if you haven't got that far yet. Please don’t read any further until you find your first coin to preserve the story for yourself!
