Aureus Coins Gold - Path of Exile

Inside the Sanctum, you will find gold coins called Aureus, a currency that the Templar used for commerce.

  • Aureus is a type of non-tradeable currency similar to Azurite which can be found in the Sanctum. Aureus is collected automatically when the player is near it.
  • Aureus can be traded to the merchant for various Boons or Templar Relics.
  • Aureus is maintained between rooms and floors, and is lost when the Sanctum run ends.
  • Aureus drops from Templar Stash chests, as well as from Guards and Bosses when killed

Spend your Aureus Coins

Although these coins belong to the Sanctum and will not leave with you, they can be traded with a merchant who you may encounter from time to time. Spend your Aureus wisely as it can be used to purchase a crucial boon when the time is right.

The Sanctum’s rooms hold many secrets. Some contain ancient fountains you can rest at to restore a portion of your resolve. Others will curse you with an affliction, hindering your progress. These afflictions stack up as you explore deeper and deeper within the Sanctum. You can also receive boons, blessings that help you overcome the Sanctum’s dangers. Each time you enter the Sanctum, you will encounter a unique layout that you must assess and adapt to as you explore.
