Trying to make a quick buck in Animal Crossing New Horizons? You're definitely not alone. We've put out some tips before on how to make Bells quick, but it's good to be prepared as you strip-mine your deserted island for all of its natural resources to sell to some infant raccoons. Here's our list of shell prices in Animal Crossing: New Horizons if you like long walks on the beach.

Shell Prices in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

If you've been cavorting along the beach in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, then you'll definitely have noticed that shells are basically littering your otherwise pristine sands. Luckily, these are worth something at your local Nook's Cranny, though you might want to figure out how much first before you start dedicating your entire life to shell hunting. Luckily for you, we have the rundown on shell prices in Animal Crossing New Horizons and we've listed them out below:

  • Pearl Oyster - 1,200 Bells
  • Conch - 700 Bells
  • Scallop shell - 600 Bells
  • White scallop - 450 Bells
  • Giant Clam - 450 Bells
  • Oyster shell - 450 Bells
  • Coral - 250 Bells
  • Sea Snail - 80 Bells
  • Venus comb - 150 Bells
  • Sand dollar - 120 Bells
  • Manila Clam - 100 Bells
  • Cowries - 60 Bells
  • Porceletta - 30 Bells

As you can see, we've sorted them out in order of how lucrative they can be for you if you're hunting, so if your inventory is already bulging with natural resources then there's no need to empty all your pockets out for something like a Porceletta if it's just been washed up with a bunch of other sea trash. If you can net the elusive Pearl Oysters, then you're going to want to make sure that they're being flogged off and hopefully are even an in-demand item for maximum cashout potential. All sorts of other things can wash up on your beach, including rusted parts, and we have a guide on what to do with those right here as well. 

Now that you have our advice on the shell prices in Animal Crossing New Horizons, it should be a little bit easier for you to make a profit off a bunch of conches and clams. We're not quite sure what you've got in store for you on any given day of the week when it comes to the offerings of the sea, but you really don't have anything else to do other than flog them or make some ceremonial decorations (and honestly, we reckon something like the Bamboo Wand is cuter and we have the recipe for that available for you in this guide here).
