9/8/05- still v 1.0, just updating contact info is all.

5/21/04- v. 1.0: First version of FAQ. Coin list complete.
*-~ 2: Intro ~-*

First of all, I would like to thank you for buying a copy of Boktai: The Sun
is in Your Hand. This game was not very well hyped in the States, but somehow,
you managed to find this game, play it, and enjoy it enough not to return it.
Not to mention that by buying it, you are helping the makers of this great
game, Konami, make many more great games, including a Boktai sequal. So, on
behalf of all fellow Boktai players, and Konami, I would like to, once again,
thank you.

Now that the cheesy speech is over, welcome to my Silver Coin FAQ. This guide
is designed to help those that have not done so already, find the games 30
hidden Silver Coins. Doing so nets you a pretty cool Sound Test option that is
fun to play with on a rainy day (and you can't purify that darn boss!).

So, lets move on, shall we?
*-~ 3: List ~-*

I went through the game on a seperate file and listed coins as I found them.
Coins are listed in the following manner:

Coin #(a number 1-30, for listing purposes.)
Location: The dungeon in which the coin is located.
Desc.: A detailed description of where the coin is. If an asterisk (*) is next
to the description, then the chest is invisibe, but can be seen with the help
of a See-All Nut or Scan grenade.

Also, if I say anything is to Django's left/right/front/back, I mean relative
to which way Django is facing. So if Django is facing up-right, and I say
something is to left, I mean in the up-left direction.

Now, the not-so-long-awaited list.

Coin #1
Location: Fog Castle
Desc.: On the second floor inside the castle, after coming up the stairs, to
the left (Django's left!) of the block right in front of you.*

Coin #2
Location: Small Cave
Desc.: When you get into the room with the winding narrow path and two doors
that lead to Django's left and right, take the right one. You'll see a green
chest guarded by some Boks. Sneak past them (or purify them) and get the coin!

Coin #3
Location: Gate of the Dead
Desc.: In the first big room, stick to the wall to Django's left and follow it
through an entrance way. The coin is in plain sight.
