I don't think it's communicable.Stellazzio coins are key items one can find around the world and trade in to an old bird (literally!) in Treno. This sidequest is very beneficial and can give some excellent items/equipment, as well as provide the infamous δHammer item used in making the best armor in the game. To boot, this can be done at any time, on any disc - nothing is missable! See below for the descriptions and screenshots explaining where they can be found, in the order in which they can first be found.

These coins mean a great deal to Queen Stella, and as such you'll get a reward for each one you bring to her in Treno. You can bring them all at once, or one at a time, and in any order - the rewards are based on quantity, not specific Stellazzio. The one exception to this, of course, is the thirteenth Stellazzio, Ophiuchus; since you can not collect this stone until after all the others, it can not be given to Stella until last.

2000 Gil

The Hammer

Cinna's δHammer is a weapon, but it's not one that can ever be used. Instead, it has two potential uses, depending on what your goals are for the game; if you're looking for Steiner's ultimate armor, you will need to take the δHammer to Hades' Synthesis Shop in Memoria to have it synthesized into δTin Armor. If you don't want to do that, just hold onto it and you'll instead get a short scene added into the ending, shown here!
