I took that, put it into the offset box in XSE and hit decompile. What shows up is text that says "update coins" and some hex numbers.
It shows up like that because, when you put in the offset and hit decompile, it assumes it's a script, and uses the hex values for scripting instead of letters. For instance, if you made a script, put in "msgbox 0x1C5C78 MSG_FACE", and compiled and then decompiled that same script, it'd show up as it should, because XSE would assume it was letters. That being said, I don't think XSE can search for hex values, just decompile scripts. Try using a hex editor to search for the hex values "78 5C 1C 08" and you'll find the part of the overall script that calls the message at 0x1C5C78.

I think I'm done with ROM hacking. I'll still pop in and visit, though.
