The best level in Bianco Hills for the 100-Coin Shine is Episode 8 - The Red Coins of the Lake, as you don’t have to worry about any pollution and there are a good number of coins to be gotten from the various flowers. There are enemies called Sanbo Heads, which disguise themselves as flowers, but pop up and attempt to ram into you. Normally, jumping on these Sanbo Heads will grant you a single coin, but if you manage to push them into a wall with FLUDD, then they will yield three coins.

(1 of 2) Knock the Sanbo Head into a wall to get three coins

Knock the Sanbo Head into a wall to get three coins (left), Open up all the flowers in a ring to get a lot of coins (right)

On the open side of the big wall, you will encounter a total of nine Sanbo Heads, which means you can get 27 coins from them alone (27). For the flower rings, you will want to spray them with water so the flowers open up. If you can manage to open all of the flowers at the same time, then you will spawn a number of coins equal to the flowers left in the ring. There are three rings in open area on the one side of the wall, meaning you can get another 17 coins from them (44). On the other side of the wall, you will find two more flower rings, complete with more Sanbo Heads.

One will be right by the abundance of trees just past the wall, while the other will be across the river, by some logs sticking out of the water. That will add another four Sanbo Heads (56), as well as another two flower rings (68). The tops of the trees themselves will have a single coin each and for those without one, you can spray the center of the tree to spawn a coin. Note that the one tree houses a Blue Coin, which does not count towards the total normal coin count. For the Seedy Pod enemies, stun them with water from a distance, then jump on them.

You can find a bunch of coins among the ropes by the huge windmill

From all of the trees and enemies on the trees, you can get another ten coins (78). Head on over to the wires, where all of the Red Coins are located. In fact, start from the rope by where the red box is located, as that is where you will begin finding normal coins on the ropes (grab the Rocket Nozzle while you’re there, as you might need it). You should be able to get a good amount of coins here, around nine from the ropes starting from the location above (87). Look for the column of lined-up ropes, which will have another eleven coins between them (98). For the final set of coins, you will find four sets of four coins each on the lake’s surface, around the tower (114). The Shine will spawn on top of a platform near the wall.
