Charity tokens were a currency used in the May 2017 Gielinorian Giving, October 2017 Gielinorian Giving II, and the Mental Health Awareness Week events of May 2018, October 2019, and May 2020.

They functioned in roughly the same way as Zamorakian emblems and similar currencies:

All the remaining tokens were converted into 10 coins each on the beginnings of 24 May 2017, 19 October 2017, 23 May 2018, 16 October 2019, and 30 May 2020 as indicated by the in-game message similar to: You have until the 30th May 23:59 UTC to use your Charity Tokens before they disappear!. In 2020 the message was off by a day, and the tokens were converted in the beginning of 30 May although the message implied that this would only happen a day later.

When a player receives charity tokens, they are notified with one of the following messages:

  • You find [X] Charity Tokens. They are added to your bank. (When there was no space in your inventory and there were none in your currency pouch.)
  • You find [X] Charity Tokens. They are added to your inventory. (When there was space in your inventory and there were none in your currency pouch.)
  • You find [X] x Charity Tokens. They are added to your currency pouch. (When there were some already in your currency pouch.)

In May 2017 this was followed by a filterable message:

  • You have gathered Y/1000 Charity Tokens for today.

When you obtained your daily limit, the following was shown:

  • You have gathered 1000/1000 and have reached your gathering limit for today.
  • You can use an event extender token to increase your gathering limit per day. These are available for purchase from the event store.

Ironman players could obtain and convert charity tokens just like regular players, but they would only receive cosmetic rewards. Once all cosmetic rewards had been claimed, Ironmen would no longer be able to convert additional charity tokens. For the Mental Health Awareness Week event of May 2020, Ironmen could convert excess charity tokens at 250 per event mystery box or 500 per big event mystery box. They gave total level times 10 for event mystery box or 20 per big event mystery box coins. So for a level 2585 ironman they would get 25,850 coins per event mystery box or 51,700 coins per big event mystery box.

There were several methods of idly collecting tokens in Prifddinas, such as balancing on the Serenity posts in the Hefin district, pickpocketing elven clan workers, playing the harps in the Ithell district, mining Seren stones in the Trahaearn district or fishing at the Prifddinas Waterfall.
