Dream Coins are the official currency of Dream Land and the rest of Stella System in the series. They are star shaped metal coins that come in a lot of different colors that determine their value according to the color.
They made their first appearance in the spin-off Raven's Quest and they made their very first appearance in the main series Chapter 13 in Gerold's retelling of the Dark Matter Cataclysm.
As mentioned above, the value of Dream Coins is determined by their color. So far in the series, the prices of products and other things that people buy are not currently known in the series but it is likely that they are not very expensive. Many Dream Landers seem to use one or more of the varieties to pay for something.
However, Phil's Grub & Go, a restaurant that was in Waddle Dee Village 20 years ago, had the price of a meal being 10 Dream Coins per person. Derin and his friends meals brought the total to 60 Dream Coins.

- The origin of the Dream Coins' star shape is a reference to the Super Smash Bros. games where the Kirby series is represented by a star, namely the Warp Star. They are based off the Point Stars that appear in some Kirby games.
- The yellow, red, green and blue Dream Coins are based off the Point Stars of the same colors that appear in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
