After a lot of persistence and a lot of experimenting, I've worked out the scoring and got 99 out of 100. How do I get that last friggin' point?

Lo Kingdom is ripping you off at the end when he spots the coin and pays you extra for it. You could actually get more for it if you kept it to sell to someone more reputable... or, you know, the point could also be yours if you decide to hang it on the wall of your house, it's up to you. However, there's no way you're going back in those woods to collect anything after the job is done. How do you make sure you get to keep the coin at the end of the game?

Let me know if you need a further hint :)

I've been working on this for days and all I'm doing is going round and round in circles and revealing more and more unknown verbs. My main thoughts were oriented around putting the coin in the car before stashing the treasure, giving it to Mandy, hiding it somehow (but there's nothing to hide it in), disguising it or somehow teleporting it during the process of making a wish. There is no way that I can earn more than 90 points without the coin or 99 points with the coin.

Love it :) Really fun little game - but I can only get 60/100

Lots of hidden points to find!
