Wumpa Coins are the main collectables in Crash Tag Team Racing. Their purpose is to buy skins and power crystals throughout Von Clutch's MotorWorld and also to buy new cars and upgrades for them in the Midway. Just like wumpa fruit, they can be either found loosely or inside Coin Crates. They are golden tokens with a symbol of a tire with wings on them.
You know, Wumpa Coins are scattered everywhere, even in certain objects. Collect those coins, baby, and spend them like crazy.Stew, Crash Tag Team Racing
Wumpa Coins return in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, where they once again serve as in-game currency. They can be earned from races and other challenges, and are used to unlock new characters, skins, vehicles and other customisation options from the game's Pit Stop. Not all content can be purchased this way, as the boss characters and their respective kart colors must be unlocked by beating them in Adventure Mode. After the game's release, players can earn additional content by participating in seasonal Grand Prix challenges, but said content will be added to the Pit Stop as each Grand Prix finishes, in case the player misses out.
List of Wumpa Coin reward rates
Wumpa Coins are received by completing race stages from within the game. This amount is doubled during the Weekend Bonus multiplier (e.g. 20 becomes 40), quintupled during Wumpa Time bonus multiplier (e.g. 20 becomes 100), and even tenfold when both multipliers are active (e.g. 20 becomes 200).

The highest amount of Wumpa Coins one can get when placing 1st is 80 on Electron Avenue, while the lowest amount is 20 on any of the battle arenas.
During certain conditions, the amount of Wumpa Coins is multiplied. So far, there are only two bonus multipliers.
|Bonus name||x||Availability||Appearance rate||Duration|
|Wumpa Time||5||Online||Daily||30 minutes of play time|
|Weekend Bonus||2||Any mode||Friday - Sunday||60 hours (fixed, begins at 1:00 PM PST)|
Wumpa Time (formerly known as Daily Bonus) is an online, temporary multiplier that quintuples the amount of Wumpa Coins one receives (e.g. 20 becomes 100). The Weekend Bonus is an extra bonus multiplier that lasts during the weekend, which doubles the amount of Wumpa Coins (e.g. 20 becomes 40). Both multipliers stack onto each other, meaning that if both multipliers are active, the player receives their Wumpa Coins tenfold (e.g. 20 becomes 200).
- The coins had a different appearance earlier in the game, as shown in the image. They had Crash sliding in his Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex model.
- The conversations with the Park Drones, as well as characters like Nina Cortex, imply that Wumpa Coins are a valid form of currency in the Crash Bandicoot universe, while Von Clutch refers to them as "Park Tokens", indicating that they are valid only within the Motorworld.
