Mini Medals can be exchanged at L’Academie de Notre Maitre les Médailles for rare items and some of the best equipment in the game. They can be found from breaking pots and barrels as well as in chests and from defeating enemies. They can also be rewards for missions. Once exchanged, they are converted into stamps for your album.
This guide will cover two post game methods of farming Mini Medals as well as the prizes for collecting them.
The first method requires access to Drustran Trials where some of the enemies have Mini Medals as their common drop. The best area to farm Mini Medals is the lower level of the Cruel Crypt in the Disciple’s Trial first zone where a slot machine enemy called the Vicious Penny Pincher spawns.
When fighting it, use the Half-Inch ability to steal Mini Medals from them. Although you can only steal one Mini Medal per Penny Pincher, they can also drop them once defeated.
To improve the chances of stealing equip items like the Robber Gloves, Uniforme de l’Académie, and Bunny Tails. To know how to get these items, check the “Best Way to Farm Gold” guide.
The next method requires you to beat one of the trials and choosing the wish “I wish I could enter a top-level horse race!” which unlocks the Black Cup in the city of Galopolis.
Once unlocked, you can enter the Black Cup at Galopolis with 5000 G and lose the race which gives you a Mini Medal as the prize.Essentially, this method will allow you to exchange 5000 G for a Mini Medal.
