How long does money stay after death?

In Terraria, how long does money you drop from death stay on the ground? I’m wondering if it is worth the risk of another death to try and run for my money.


Items dropped in Terraria Single-Player Mode do not disappear until picked up, destroyed, or until the game has been saved and exited. Coins, despite their monetary significance, are treated just the same as any other item in-game.

Items can only be destroyed (currently) by full immersion in Lava or Magma. Thus, as long as you didn’t burn up in a magma pool, chances are good that your coins are still waiting there for you, even if it takes a bit of work to find.

I’m unsure how items are handled on multi-player servers.
