ACNH - Money Rock - What is the Money Rock

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, all rocks on your island will provide you materials when you strike it.

The Money Rock is a special variant that appears on your island once a day. When struck with a shovel or an axe, the rock will drop bells which you can collect.

The Location is Random

The exact location of the Money Rock is random everyday, so you'll need to go around the island and hit every rock until you find the Money Rock.

The Money Rock only appears once per day and you can strike it a total of eight times. Keep in mind it's possible to run out of time before hitting it the maximum amount of times!

How Many Bells Does the Money Rock Give?

ACNH - Money Rock - How Many Bells?

The first strike will spawn 100 bells, the second 200, then 500, 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, then finally 8,000, for a total of 16,100 bells.

This is a considerable amount of money, so it's vital that you do it every day and that you always hit the rock a maximum of eight times.

How to Hit the Rock 8 Times

When you hit the rock with your shovel or axe, your character gets pushed back slightly and move you further away from the rock.

This means that it's often impossible to hit the rock eight times in a row before the timer runs out. Fortunately, you can dig holes around your character to stay in place.

Step Directions
1 Find a Rock.
2 Equip your shovel and start digging.
3 Position yourself.
4 Strike the rock with your shovel.
5 If nothing comes out, fill in the holes and find another rock, then repeat.

1. Find a Rock

It's important that you hit the rock as fast as possible if it drops bells so you can get all 8 drops.

5. If No Coins Come Out, Repeat Step 1.

If anything else besides coins come out of the Rock, it won't be a Money Rock, you'll need to find another rock on your island and repeat the steps mentioned.

There'll be 1 guaranteed Money Rock on the island everyday, so get looking!
