Now let’s get to the Free CoC Gems! You’ll be earning gems so fast people would swear you’re using a CoC Gem Hack!

1. Achievements

These will net you a nice amount of free gems and if you start working on them early, they won’t be as much of a bother later in the game. The idea is they should scale with your progression, to avoid you having to go back to get one finished.

2. Removing Obstacles

tacles are objects that will randomly appear in your base location and will have to be removed if you wish to build there. However, you will get some free gems and the amount you get can be predicted, as they follow this repeating pattern: 6, 0, 4, 5, 1, 3, 2, 0, 0, 5, 1, 0, 3, 4, 0, 0, 5, 0, 1, 0.

The first obstacle awards you with 6 free gems, the next you get 0 gems and so on and so forth.


3. Gem Box

These awesome little treasures have a chance to spawn in your base around every 7 days, give or take. You’ll want to make sure that you keep an eye out every day so you don’t miss one. Only one can be present at a time and it needs to be collected before the next one can spawn.

Also, it is believed that they have a higher chance to spawn in bases that have been cleared of obstacles, so be sure you keep your base nice and clean!

4. Gem Mine

This is just a structure that will passively produce free gems without you having to do anything. Just be sure you regularly collect them! You’ll need a builder hall level 3 in order to repair the gem mine. From that point you can upgrade the building as you would normally.

5. Events

These weekly events will reward you from anywhere between 30-100 free gems upon completion. The troop cost of these events are kept relatively low to help ensure you profit on other resources as well.

Generators & Cheats

If you’ve done any searching online about clash of clans chances are you’ve heard mentions of “Clash of Clans Online Gem Generators”. This “cheat” software promises to deliver gems directly into your account but most of the time they are fake. In fact, they usually look very poorly made, and/or ask for your personal login information to try and just steal your accounts!

It’s important to be able to tell what’s fake and what isn’t. If you do want to check out these generators you can check out our:

Free Clash of Clans Generator

You can get unlimited Gems, Gold and Elixir No downloading / installing, and no passwords required.

On the opposite end of the online generators you have the .apk files and private servers. These typically require you to jailbreak your mobile device and install some suspicious program on your phone that emulates the actual game. If you use these you may get your infinite gems, and you may also just get some nasty viruses and trojans. Please DO NOT download / install any suspicious software onto your mobile devices.


There are many ways to effectively farm free gems for Clash of Clans. It’s important to remember that as you play and level up, some gem farming methods will become increasingly more difficult. The main one being Achievements, this means that, while you’ll earn more gems per achievement, they will be more difficult to complete.
