Stardew Valley secret coins are collectable items that have rare or useful information about Pelican Town, its small community and its inhabitants. These can take the form of treasure maps, diary entries, cryptic messages or reveal the location of rare items and capabilities.
Stardew Valley has 25 secret notes. Many of these can be found by simply doing everyday tasks. You will need a magnifying lens before you can start looking for them. This is how you do it so that you can begin looking for hidden scribbles.
How to get the magnifying glasses in Stardew Valley
This item is part the quest ‘A Winter Mystery’. It’s activated when the player walks to the bus stop at the farm between 6am – 4pm in winter. The cutscene will show a shadow monster moving towards the town center.
Follow the shadow creature to town, and you will see footprints in snow leading to a playground. The creature will emerge when you shake the bush. They introduce themselves as Krobus and give you the magnifying glasses. Now you can read secret messages.
Where can I find Stardew Valley secret messages
After performing certain actions, secret notes that spawn are activated. These notes can be found by digging up weeds and killing monsters in mines.
You can send a note to your inventory by picking up a paper note. To read the contents, go into your bag and click on a note. It will be automatically added to your secret note collection tab, which you can then return to whenever you wish to read it.
The first group of secret notes is notes 1-9. These notes provide information about the villager’s likes, dislikes, and do not ask the player to perform any specific tasks. Notes 10-25 are a challenge or task that can be completed to earn a reward. Without first finding the note, you cannot find the reward or secret items. The secret note that corresponds to the Mayor Lewis gold statue will be required in order to locate it.
These are the secrets notes. What do they mean? How to get them completed?

It’s just a page from someone else’s journal… There are very few “older” bachelors in town and they are not all perfect. Harvey is anxious and weak. However, I know he’d make a great husband. He enjoys pickles and coffee. He is a bit pompous and melodramatic but has a good chin. He loves crab cakes and pomegranates. Shane is messy and antisocial. His gruff exterior may be a defense mechanism to protect him from the outside world, but I believe it is. He enjoys beer, pizza, and pepper poppers.

12. Garbage tips
On lucky days, I’ve found some great things just by looking in the trash cans. Sometimes, you will find the “dish of the Day” behind the saloon…usually fresh! For dessert, I will check the Mullners can for cookies. The museum and blacksmith have cans that contain treasures.
These garbage diving tips come from Linus. They will help you find new items in the trash bins of Pelican Town residents.
