Assuming one has plenty of extra lives, is there any value, in general, to collecting coins in Super Mario 3D Land?

If like in Super Mario Galaxy 2 there is a use for coins but only those collected in a specific level, then please don't name the level, just say that there are such levels.

No. The only purpose of regular coins is to get extra lives.
