Overview

Crowns are an in-game currency that players can purchase using real-life money. They can also be obtained as rewards in-game, without spending money. In general, their benefits are meant to save the player's time. There are multiple types of crowns:

Starter Crowns 
Every player starts with some Starter Crowns. They are special from the rest, in that they cannot be used to buy gold but can be directly spent to train skills up the skill's 5th level as long as the character is under level 10. Starter Crowns cannot be transferred to other players nor used to enchant items. When random Crown Showers happen, the awards are in Starter Crowns.
Personal Crowns 
These crowns have almost no restrictions. You can get these crowns as rewards in-game (such as for finding bugs). They are also awarded for solving quests: You get double the quest points in Personal Crowns. Personal Crowns can be given freely to other players, and are often used as payment for services.
Account Crowns 
All of the account's characters can use these crowns. Depending on your platform, they are obtained using the "Buy Crowns" option in the settings, where you can purchase them for real money. For steam this is visible in the top left under Game > Buy crowns. There are a small set of purchases in the game, such as custom sprite eligibility, which require Account Crowns. Account Crowns can also be given freely to other players, but they are converted into Personal Crowns when transferred. They remain Account Crowns if transferred between alts on the same account (email).

When you spend crowns in-game, Starter Crowns are used first, then your Personal Crowns, then your Account Crowns.
