I have found a few of these hidden in chests and stuff. What’s the point in them? Seems like a letdown when I need potions and stuff and all I am getting are these Moogle Medals. What is the point of them?
They are a form of currency that you use later in the game. They are worth collecting as you can buy some good stuff with them. Once you get to the sector 5 slums you will find the Moogle emporium as part of the story and it will introduce you to the currency and how to use them.
