The golden shovel is a tool item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As a shovel, the player can dig holes, fill holes, and bury or plant items. The player will use this item for 200 times whenever the player digs up a fossil, plant, or buried item, hits a rock for items (the item will break once the rock produces no more items) or after eating a food item, digs up a tree or breaks a rock. The golden shovel cannot be used on any players' islands unless they are marked as a Best Friend.

The golden shovel can be obtained from crafting, which requires shovel and gold nugget. The recipe for this item can be obtained from Gulliver after helping him 30 times.

In Happy Home Paradise, no villagers or facility unlock this item for designing. It can only be used once the player's DIY catalog is unlocked after completing the 15th vacation home.
