Badges are a new achievement system in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. They are awarded by Phineas, who will only appear on days with clear weather if the player meets the conditions for the new badge. Badges have three ranks: bronze, silver, and gold; they are received for a multitude of accomplishments, including catching bugs and accumulating playtime.

Money-Related Badges

Saving

  • The Bell Saver badge is awarded to players who have saved a fair amount of Bells in their bank account. The badge only counts the bells the player currently has in their account; it is not awarded based on cumulative savings over the course of the gameplay.
Color Name Bells Saved
Bronze Avid Bell Saver 1,000,000 Bells
Silver Wealthy Bell Saver 10,000,000 Bells
Gold Tycoon Bell Saver 100,000,000 Bells

Despite the flavor text for 'Tycoon Bell Saver' telling the player they need to save over 1 billion Bells, they only need to save 100,000,000 Bells. This is an error in the game. Furthermore, it is impossible to store more than 999,999,999 Bells in the bank account, which means if the number of Bells needed was 1 billion, it would be impossible to earn.
