Mini Medals have been a staple of the Dragon Quest series, ever since their introduction in the original Dragon Quest/Warrior IV, on the NES. They are basically a collectible and upon finding the correct NPC, you are able to hand in Mini Medals for prizes. In Dragon Quest XI, you will be finding Mini Medals all throughout your journey, usually in chests, in breakable objects, and as well as rewards from quests. In previous games, you just handed over the Mini Medals for the prizes, but in this one, you get stamps on cards according to how many you have.
There are two spots where you can hand in Mini Medals, although one is limited, with both of them requiring you to have access to a boat. The first spot is in Puerto Valor, although you are restricted to a single page for the Album de Medailles. That means any more Mini Medals beyond that number has to wait until you can access L’Academie de Notre Maitre des Medailles. It is here that the principal of the school will allow you to hand in all of the Mini Medals you currently have, as well as those you find in the future.
The following table lists all of the rewards you will receive for turning in your Mini Medals.
|25||Uniforme de l’Academie|
|30||Kit Fit for a King (Recipe)|
|75||Circle of Serendipity|
|80||Styles for All Seasons (Recipe)|
|90||Glammer Gear for Go-Getters (Recipe)|
|110||Making Things with Metal Kings (Recipe)|
Once you receive all of the above rewards, the principal will open up a little shop, of sorts. Any excess Mini Medals can be used to purchase the following items:
|5||Uber Agate of Evolution|
