Selling Shells is a quick way to earn Bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but, you may be wondering what the individual Shell Prices are.

It’s important to remember to sell your Shells directly to Timmy or Tommy in Nook’s Cranny, as you will always be rewarded with more Bells to build up your Bank of Nook account 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 Shell in the game, but, given the ever-changing seasons, it is not exhaustive nor complete just yet.

If you have retrieved a Shell 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 find more, we’ll make sure that this list of Shell Prices is kept up-to-date over time.
