There is also a purple ball you can play with in the Tower, which descends very slowly when knocked into the air. It can appear at one of two places: on a table beside Master Rahool's shop, or to the right of the Bounty Tracker.
You can earn 12 Strange Coins a week by completing the Level 22 Heroic Strike - 3 Strange Coins), the Level 26 Heroic Strike - 3 Strange Coins), and the Level 28 Heroic Strike - 6 Strange Coins). You also may find them as rare mission rewards or in engram/gold chests.
Take your Strange Coins to the Tower and exchange them with Xur, Agent of the 9, for special Sparrow and weapon upgrades. Xur is only in the Tower from 9:00 AM on Fridays to 9:00 AM on Sundays. He is in the Hall of Guardians, in the same area as the Crucible quartermaster.
To quickly get loot, especially high-level gear, go to Earth and find the cave at Skywatch in Old Russia. There will probably be players already there, making use of this trick. Hive Acolytes and Thralls spawn in waves from the cave and rush out. Kill them before they find cover, but don't head in for the loot just yet. Remain just far enough away, and the waves will spawn over and over again. Eventually, they'll have dropped a ton of loot for you to collect.
This method can also be used to build up a lot of glimmer, especially if you use the Black Wax Idol items, which increase the glimmer you get from killing Hive enemies.
Getting 2500 kills on a planets doubles the upgrade materials you can collect from that planet. For example, if you kill 2500 enemies on Earth, and then collect a spinmetal plant, you will receive 2 spinmetals instead of one.

Legendary and Exotic items are often rewards for the weekly Raid and Nightfall Activities.

Collect Strange Coins and exchange them with Xur for Legendary/Exotic gear.
Gather Motes of Light, which can be found as random drops. Additionally, once you're Level 20, experience points will earn you Motes of Light, as well. You can give them to the Speaker to buy high-level items or give them to Xur in exchange for Exotic engrams. If you decrypt an Exotic engram, you will receive a good reward.
To farm loot and quickly collect Legendary engrams, head to the Rocketyard area of Old Russia. Find a cave enemies emerge from and position yourself far enough from it so that they will respawn in unending waves when you defeat them. Fight them until they have dropped a reasonable amount of loot, and then grab it all.
