Minion Rush Golden Prize Pod

The Golden Prize Pod was an item in Minion Rush, and was one of the three special "golden" items in the game (the others being the Golden Banana and Golden Shield). It beared the same appearance as Silver Prize Pod earned from collecting three Bapples during a daily event, however, it had a copper/golden color instead of the regular gray color. Unlike the silver ones, the Golden Prize Pod did not appear after collecting three Bapples, they could be found in the shop (classified as an item), and could be bought for 50 tokens. Once bought, it was opened immediately.

The main purpose of the Golden Prize Pod was that purchasing and opening one increased the chance of earning rare items such as Puzzle Pieces and trophies. However, as mentioned above, the downside of purchasing this item was that it could only be bought using tokens, which were also very difficult items to collect regularly (without paying for them with real money).
