Minikin's Dominion

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Minikin's Dominion is the location to exchange Mini medals for prizes in Dragon Quest IV.


Minikin's Dominion is is located in the northeast corner of the map and first reachable by ship. Aside from King Minikin, the palace also contains an inn in the basement and a Teleportal on the upper floors. It's also notable for being very close to Briny Lair, where the Zenithian armour is stored.


Price per person
10 gold coins


In Dragon Quest IV, Mini medals are collected by a king who lives in Minikin's Dominion.

For the NES version, a total of 32 medals could be found, which were used as a separate currency for the prizes offered by the Medal King. A player could get more than one of the same prize offered by the Medal King.

Medals Prize
1 Staff of divine wrath
4 Happy hat
6 Miracle sword
20 Liquid metal helm

In the Nintendo DS remake, the number of medals and prizes earned was changed to follow the system used in more recent Dragon Quest games:

Medals Prize
15 Strength ring
20 Ruby of protection
25 Magical skirt
30 Staff of divine wrath
34 Kerplunk bracer
38 Miracle sword
43 Happy hat
47 Mighty armlet
52 Liquid metal shield
60 Gringham whip

For the DS version it isn't possible to obtain the Gringham whip until Chapter 6 as the Pioneer Town can't be completed until that Chapter. The Cell phone version of the game accelerates the completion of the town, thus allowing all prizes to be obtained before ending the main game in Chapter 5
