What are Soul Coins in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Soul Coins are a unique and valuable form of currency and power supply utilized in the Nine Hells of Baldur’s Gate 3. They are generated when a soul is ensnared within a coin, which is then used by devils and their allies to trade and can be exchanged for an array of items and resources.

One of the main uses of Soul Coins is to power the infernal engine of Karlach. If you recruit her as your companion, she can consume a Soul Coin which will give her Infernal Fury. This makes her melee attacks deal extra fire damage when she is low on HP or Raging.

While this can help you in tough battles, you should be careful with using Soul Coins. They might have other uses later in the game.
