Whether in Clash Royale or just about any other mobile game, money makes the world go ’round. If you want to get the best stuff and be a proper competitor, you gotta flash the cash, which you obviously can’t do if you can’t get your hands on some. So, how do you get Trade Tokens in Clash Royale?

How do you get Trade Tokens in Clash Royale?

Trade Tokens are a special kind of currency in Clash Royale, separate from both the baseline Gold and premium Gems. Think of Trade Tokens kind of like consumable “invites,” allowing you to initiate trades with the other players in your Clan or with the Trader NPC.

There are four types of Trade Token, corresponding to the four types of card rarity:

  • Common
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary

You can hold up to ten of each Token type at once. If you want to initiate a trade with a player/NPC, you need to offer up a Token corresponding to the rarity of the card you’re looking to obtain. It’s worth noting that while you can obtain Trade Tokens at any level, you can’t actually use them until you’re at least King Level 8.

So how do you actually get your hands on these doodads? There are three ways you can obtain more Trade Tokens for yourself, two of which are in-game goals, while the last one is… well, probably what you’re expecting.

  • Trade Tokens of all rarities can be won as rewards for completing Tournament Challenges
  • Trade Tokens are occasionally offered up as milestone rewards on the Trophy Road
  • Trade Tokens can be purchased from the in-game store, specifically from occasional special offers

Once you’ve gotten your hands on a stack of Trade Tokens of the various types, and have reached the prerequisite level, you can begin initiating trades with other players and requesting cards.
