I don't know the year, but the main character was a boy who was collecting magic coins (at least, I think it was coins). The last item was in his eye.

It may be like 5-6 coins that he must find. I think either time would slow down and he would go back in time and fight for the coin or that was just the era of the movie.

There was a girl maybe a sister or friend she had powers. I think there was a villain.

    Do you remember when you watched this? VHS? DVD? Television? Movie theater? Animated (Western or Eastern)? Live-Action? Did he have companions? – FuzzyBoots Apr 22 '16 at 18:53
  • Is there any chance that these are magic postage stamps and not coins? – Gorchestopher H Apr 22 '16 at 19:18

  • This is vaguely similar to The Dark is Rising, by Susan Cooper, in which eleven-year-old Will Stanton inherits the task of gathering the six magical Signs that are key to the eternal war of good versus evil (the Old Ones vs. the Dark).  The Signs are circles (rings) "about the size of his palm", made of iron, bronze, wood, stone, fire, and water. – Peregrine Rook Apr 29 '16 at 20:21

Could this be Scott Pilgrim VS The World? It's not an exact match, but there are enough similarities to make it plausible.

The main character isn't really seeking magic coins, but he gains them, video-game style, after defeating an enemy. There is a scene near the end where he relives a battle --effectively going back in time. The primary love interest is a girl who has the ability to move through "subspace." There are seven "villains", with the big boss being Jason Schwartzman.

  • Good catch. That could match indeed. – FuzzyBoots Apr 22 '16 at 19:56
