Gold Nuggets very rarely drop from rocks and can be used in DIY items. Some items can only be obtained through DIY crafting with Gold Nuggets as a material.
You won't come across a lot of Gold Nuggets in the game, so definitely hang on to them rather than selling them for some quick Bells.
After updating your game to ver 1.4.0 or later, you can get a King Tut Mask recipe by finding and picking up a Gold Nugget. This item is infamous for the bad luck it brings to players.
The best way to get Gold Nuggets is by hitting rocks on the islands you visit on Mystery Tours, the tours you can go on by using the Nook Miles tickets. Remember to bring axes or shovels to hit the rocks with.
You can only get Materials from the Rocks on your island a limited times per day, but you always have unlimited chances of finding them so long as you keep going on Mystery Island Tours.
You can dig two holes behind you when you gather the various materials from rocks to avoid being bounced back too far, allowing you to hit the rock 8 times repeatedly and get the maximum number of materials.

You can find a variety of materials from hitting rocks, such as Clay, Stone, and Iron Nuggets, but all of them have a random chance of dropping. Gold Nuggets have a low chance of dropping and are extremely rare.
With their incredibly low drop rate, Gold Nuggets are very hard to obtain in large amounts.
If you hit the rocks on your island with a shovel every day, you'll eventually come across a gold nugget, so the only option is to do this daily.
You need 1 Golden Nugget every time you make a Golden Tool. Seeing as the Golden Tools also break, you'll want to stock up on as many as possible!

While Gold Nuggets can also be sold for a crisp 10,000 Bells, they are so hard to come by that we recommend against selling them.
