Company spends over 60 hours counting coins in various Mario games

Ever wonder how many coins are in a Mario game? You might have thought about it for a few minutes and then moved on. Then there's a company like Giff Gaff who have decided to spend over 60 hours counting every single coin in multiple Mario games. They've put together multiple spreadsheets and tons of data to come to the following amounts.

Super Mario Bros. – 1,089 coins
Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels – 1,876 coins
Super Mario Bros. 2 – 297 coins
Super Mario Bros. 3 – 4,425 coins
Super Mario Land – 2,003 coins
Super Mario World – 4,930 coins
Super Mario Land 2 – 3,237 coins
Super Mario 64 – 2,672 coins
Super Mario Sunshine – 1,830 coins
New Super Mario Bros. – 7,360 coins
Super Mario Galaxy – 3,163 coins
New Super Mario Bros. Wii – 9,388 coins
Super Mario Galaxy 2 – 3,931 coins
Super Mario 3D Land – 5,321 coins
New Super Mario Bros. 2 – 9, 999, 999 coins
New Super Mario Bros. U – 9,421 coins
Super Mario 3D World – 10.531 coins

I'm sure someone is going to go through these games and double-check the values above. You didn't have anything else planned for the weekend, right?!

Well that's just plain inaccurate. Everyone knows that Super Mario Land 2 has six golden coins.

Did they count the non-accessible coins, like those which were found in Super Mario 64 twenty years after its release?

Hope they didn't actually count the coins in NSMB2. Probably just assumed a max value as the gold fire flower can turn all blocks to coins.

Yeah, I think they basically gave up on NSMB2. And I don't blame them.

How can you count them if they appear infinitely in the first place?

Wow, the inflation in New Super Mario Bros. 2 must have been crushing .
