A variety of materials are used in Castle Cats to pay for collectibles, upgrades and quests, and some of these resources can be exchanged for others as needed. The currencies, gold and gems, are tracked at the top of the guild hall screen, while supplies of other materials are recorded in an unlabeled inventory window accessed by tapping the satchel icon at the top of the screen to the right of the gem counter.

Gold coins are the main currency in the game. They are used to purchase Common and Rare Cat Boxes, as well as Outfit and Event Boxes, and are part of the required payments for evolving heroes; crafting some Plushies; and buying the Monthly Challenge outfits and Weekly Challenge heroes. They can also be used in the Market as exchange for basic and rare materials.

Gold can be obtained from or multiplied by the following sources:



Gems are used to purchase Mythic Cat Boxes, previous years' Premium event cats, Timewalkers and Artifacts; to expand the Fortress Hero Limit; to speed up crafting; to reset the Questboard; and as required materials for crafting some Alchemy Eggs and Plushies. They can also be traded for gold if needed.

Gems can be obtained from the following sources:
