Getting the maximum score achievable on Coin Rush in New Super Mario Bros 2: 30000 coins. No infinite coin tricks were used. This combination of levels is pretty sweet as it allows you to use the gold flower in all three levels. This was the Mushroom Pack, and the levels shown are 2-4, Mushroom-3 and 2-Tower. The score that I would’ve obtained if the 30000 cap did not exist is 30308. This is the first time I’ve ever gotten 30000 coins in one go from a Coin Rush, so I didn’t actually know that there was a limit while I was recording; hence I gathered coins beyond 15k where I didn’t need to. This route is not optimised, but I guess it doesn’t need to be any more optimal than this seeing as it doesn’t appear we can go higher. Some general information about coin rush/some strategies that I used: I always reset if I did not get the gold flower from the box in 2-4. The gold flower in general makes any enemy kill worth money; you can couple this with a star to start doing chain kills (which instead of giving more points and 1ups like in other Mario games, gives more money instead). Similarly, when not in a star, you can do jump chain kills to get lots of money. Hitting the top of the flagpole on the way out of the level doubles the score of that level (and if you are wearing a gold flower at the time of level exit, you lose it). In the Mushroom-3 level, by using the second gold flower, it’s possible to hit the coin blocks that are behind sealed walls/floors using golden
