Kremkoins are golden coins rewarded for beating Bonus Barrels in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. There are usually two or three bonus barrels and rewards per level (except for Lost World's), and one is awarded for defeating a boss for the first time. Kremkoins are key items needed to get 100% completion of the game.
Donkey Kong Country 2
Donkey Kong Country 2's Kremkoins are mainly used to pay Klubba's fine in order to enter Lost World. Fifteen coins must be payed to access one level in Lost World. There are a total of 75 coins in the game, meaning 75 different Bonus Barrels and 5 levels in Lost World. Lost World's bonus barrels have DK Coins instead of Kremkoins, and only one per level.
In this game, there was a very useful cheat usable on the first level to obtain all the Kremkoins at once, and get a lot of game % complete. It can be viewed here:
Donkey Kong Land 2
Donkey Kong Land 2's Kremkoins were a little different. There were only 47 Kremkoins, due to limitations, and they all had to be payed up front at Klubba's Koisk near the Gloomy Gulch in order to access Lost World.
Kremkoins in the game's sequels, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III were replaced with Bonus Coins.
