While grinding for hours for coins is a viable way to get some, some specific methods will quickly net you plenty of money. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover some of the best ways to get Star Coins fast in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

The Best Ways to Get Star Coins Fast in Disney Dreamlight Valley

You can obtain Star Coins from numerous sources in Disney Dreamlight Valley. While clearing out Night Thorns is an effective method that will net you a few coins for each one you handle, there are other ways to get coins faster:

Mine and Sell Gems

Gems are a fantastic way to get plenty of money fast if you’re lucky enough to find them. After unlocking the pickaxe, you’ll find black rocks lined along the map for you to break. When you break them, there’s a chance they’ll drop gemstones that you can sell later!

In particular, you’re looking for black stones with small, colored spots dotted around them. These stones are guaranteed to have a gem in them and, often, you’ll find a shiny variant! Shiny gems are quadruple the Star Coins of regular gems, making this method one of the best in the entire game.

Go Fishing

A relatively simple way to make money is by fishing! While fish are not worth many coins on their own, you’ll start to stockpile hundreds or even thousands of Star Coins worth as you catch more fish. If you use villager hangout bonuses to get more fish, you’ll find a quick and easy way to get some side money.

Once you buy a stove for your house and unlock cooking, you can use almost any ingredient in the game to make dishes. Depending on the rarity and difficulty of the food, you can make between a few dozen Star Coins to over one thousand. If you actively farm in the game and want to make more money, turn your produce into cooked foods!

Whenever possible, focus on making four and five-star dishes that require more ingredients. While cooking and selling a dozen Fruit Salads will earn you some money, high-tier foods are the true money-makers.


While many quests only give you experience points, others reward Star Coins. You’ll often find quests rewarding several hundred coins upon completion. If you’re in a pinch and need some Star Coins quickly, focus on finishing these quests before returning to the main story.

Disney Dreamlight Valley is available to play on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation platforms through the official website. If you’re interested in learning more about the game, check out How to Make Ratatouille and All Gem Types, Prices, And Mining Spots.
