Animal Crossing New Horizons Fossil Prices List: How Much Your Prehistoric Discoveries Are Worth

Animal Crossing New Horizons Fossils Screenshot

As you use your Shovel to dig up fossils buried beneath the surface of your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you may want to know the fossil prices for the prehistoric discoveries that you have made.

When each day starts at 5am, as many as six fossils will randomly appear on your island – marked with a star-shaped hole that need to be dug up.

Once you have donated a fossil to Blathers for safekeeping in the Museum‘s Exhibit, the duplicates that you unearth can become a reliable source for you to earn more Bells to build up your Bank of Nook account.

It’s important to remember to sell your fossils directly to Timmy or Tommy in Nook’s Cranny, as you will always be rewarded with more Bells for your efforts this way.

You can use the Drop-off Box that’s located outside the shop to sell them when it is closed, but anything that you place inside it will be bought at 80 percent of their shop trade-in value due to handling fees. The twins are related to Tom Nook, after all.

We have started to compile a list of how many Bells you will receive when selling each fossil in the game.

If you have recovered a fossil that’s missing from our list or perhaps see a price that doesn’t match up with what Timmy or Tommy gave you for it, please let us know! As we continue to dig up new fossils, we’ll make sure that this list of fossil prices is kept up-to-date over time.
