In the game The Simpsons: Tapped Out, there are dozens of different currencies, most being temporary or event exclusive. This page details each of them.

There are three main types of currency in The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Cash is the most common, and can be earned by collecting income from buildings, completing quests and collecting cash from jobs. The premium currency in the game are Donuts, which are much rarer and can only be acquired in certain ways. The player can earn Donuts by linking their Origin account to their game, and clearing Debris from their town, among other methods. The chance of finding a Donut whilst clearing debris is very low. A list of every currency ever to be introduced into the game can be found below.
