While you start earning Gold Coins early in Luigi’s Mansion 3, you won’t be able to do anything with them until after you run into Professor E. Gadd. Once you’ve rescued the Professor, you can then access his Lab, a special HUB area where you’ll find places to deposit ghosts from the Poltergust G-00, as well as where you can access multiplayer and other features in the game.

Once you’ve unlocked the lab, continue exploring until E. Gadd calls you back to the lab again. At this point, he’ll unlock the shop, a special place where you can unlock items like Gold Bones, Boo Finders, and Gem Finders. These all require 1,000 Gold Coins to purchase, which means you’re going to need to gather as many coins as you can, and save them up, so you can purchase the items you want.
