The Church is above the path to the docks. At the Church you can donate money. In return, you'll get a certain amount of coins. This is a very expensive way to get more coins if you are in trouble! For 1,000 gil you'll get 10 Bronze Coins. For 5,000 gil you'll get 5 Silver Coins. For 10,000 gil you'll get 2 Gold Coins. A donation of 30,000 gil will result in a Platinum Coin!
