Even if you stumble upon a Soul Coin, understanding its nature and usage can be perplexing. The description provided is not particularly helpful, with only a vague mention of Strange, incomprehensible whispers that provoke emotions of rage and despair. However, these coins have significant value and play a crucial role in Karlach’s journey and her Infernal Engine.
In the lore of Baldur’s Gate 3, Soul Coins are the currency of Avernus, the game’s version of hell. While you won’t be using them for shopping, they are essential for Karlach and her Infernal Engine. By giving Karlach the coins and allowing her to use them, you can activate her Infernal Fury. While in this state, whenever she is in Rage or her HP drops below 25%, all her melee attacks will deal an additional 1-4 fire damage.

You can either save her, pass a skill check, and obtain the coin, or let her die and take it from her corpse.

- Once Karlach joins your party, head to Risen Road and enter the building where Anders is hiding. Eliminate the group inside and search the crates on the first floor to find a Soul Coin.
Act 2: Moonrise Towers
- In Act 2, venture into the Moonrise Towers with Karlach as part of your party. Engage in a conversation with Lann Tarv and listen to all three of his stories. Completing this will reward you with one Soul Coin per story. If you have encountered hostility and had to attack the Tower, don’t worry. You can locate Lann Tarv’s body and still obtain the coins.
Act 3: The Lower City and Peartree’s House
- Travel to the Lower City in Act 3 and enter Peartree’s house. Simply check the mailbox to find the first Soul Coin. Furthermore, you can obtain two more coins by descending into the basement during the “Murder Target: Franc” quest. Pass a perception check to discover a key hidden under the floorboards. Bring the key to the secret hatch, open the chest, and claim two additional coins.
Act 3: House of Hope
- Head over to the House of Hope in Act 3, where you can acquire a total of five Soul Coins. These coins are locked inside Raphael’s safe, located in his bedroom.
