The main guaranteed source of Three of Coins is to purchase them from Xûr on the weekend, where you get 5 Three of Coins for 7 Strange Coins.

I believe there are other ways, could be random, could be guaranteed rewards from quests.

What are the different ways to earn Three of Coins, what sources do exist?

  • I believe it may be possible to obtain one or 2 from a drop in crucible.

Three of Coins can be acquired from the nightfall rewards. The patch from 20 october 2015 shows that the amount of coins that can drop has been increased, so naturally they drop there. They can't drop anywhere else from what has been documented and as far i know it doesn't drop in the Kings Fall raid.

As a bit of side info, here is a small guide on Three of Coins

    just a note, before the patch you could get ~5 from a nightfall. Haven't gotten any as a reward since, but if I had to guess you get ~10 if the scale up (doubled in my experience) is the same as strange coins.

  • I saw 12 "three of coins" drop last night as the nightfall reward. As well as 15 "strange coins".

  • @TravisJ In one nightfall run? ie. 12 three of coins + 15 strange coins? Or was that for two different players? Or was it 12 + 15 total across all 3? Oct 28, 2015 at 7:22
  • @LasseV.Karlsen - Those were two different players.

You can get three of coins from Xur but the other way I know is to get them from nightfall rewards, and very occasionally from vanguard strikes.
