When a block contains multiple coins, there is usually a short time limit before it turns into a Used Block.

Wii, after hitting a Coin Block a certain amount of times, five Coins will fly out from the Coin Block.
They would return in Super Mario 3D Land alongside a ? Block and Brick Block style. There would be a new rectangular coin block that would appear and give Mario either two coins with an item or just three coins. Some rectangular blocks could be hit multiple times and give Mario three coins for each hit.
There would also be Question Boxes that appear in Super Mario 3D Land where Mario would wear them and gain an infinite amount of coins while he walks with this box. It can be lost when he is injured or completes the level. If he reaches the Flagpole then Mario will get an extra life.

They would appear throughout the Paper Mario Series and give Mario many coins depending on the speed that Mario hits the block. In Super Paper Mario, when Mario flips to 3D, he will be able to see the image of a coin on the side of the coin block.
