List of Contents
The Money Rock is a phenomenon that occurs once per day in every island (village). It involves striking one of your island's large rocks with a shovel or axe, which causes the rock to drop bells, which can then be collected. The exact location of the money rock is random every day, so you will need to go around the island and strike rocks until you find the right one.
The money rock only appears once per day, and it can be struck a total of eight times, if done properly. However, after the first bells drop from the rock, there is only a limited amount of time that you can strike the rock to gain bells, meaning that it is possible to run out of time before hitting it all eight times.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, all rocks in your town will give you some kind of material when hitting them with an axe or shovel, and one rock will be a money rock. This means that learning how to hit every rock 8 times within the time limit is essential.
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 is vital that you not only do it every day, but also that you don't mess it up.
When you hit the rock with your shovel or axe, you will be pushed back slightly, making you further and further away from the rock. This will typically make it impossible to hit the rock eight times in a row before the timer runs out, so you will need to make use of digging holes to stay in place.
The following steps will ensure that you always get the full amount of money from the rock.
