Doubloons are the rare gold coins in Lil Pirates. They are elite money and can be used to get elite equipment. they can be recieved when friends level up, in which you will get a 1 in 3 possiblility of getting one. also, they are recieved in leveling up sometimes, as well as completing objectives. they are best recieved in friends. just 30 or so friends can give 5 or more doubloons on a lucky day.(besides upgrading your ship, the costiest item is the epic pirate statue, which is 30 doubloons.)
