[In any following calculations, "n" represents your current level (your neighbor's if it is finding Scrat there).]
The base amount earned varies. As a general rule, those bought with acorns, given as collection rewards, or unlocked at higher levels tend to yield more coins for a given recharge time.
- e.g. Compare the base earning rates for the completed families of Possum (Lv8, 1700 coins), Horse (Lv29, 3400 coins), Sabertooth Tiger (Collection reward, 6800 coins), Pink Ostrich (20 acorns, 8500 coins) and Shark (300 acorns, 8500 coins). They all have the same recharging time of 6 hours, but the coin earnings are quite different.
Clear Snow (or Leaf) PilesEdit
6n coins for each pile, plus 1 or 2 coins to clear larger piles
There are various ways your friends can help you earn coins.
- Friends can send you a gift once a day, and it may be 100 .
- Find Scrat in your friends' villages - you'll get 100n if you used the hint, 150n if you found Scrat before the hint.
Catch Scrat in your village - you'll get 150n coins if his acorn is successfully caught. Scrat comes by every 4 minutes in your village. If you didn't catch him successfully the 1st time, he will come back after 2 minutes. Leaving in between Scrat's visiting times will freeze the timer. Quitting the game 1 minute after catching Scrat will make him appear 3 minutes after starting the game again.
Play Kung Fu ScratEdit
The Kung Fu Scrat game can be a great way to earn coins. See its page for more details.

There are several collections to be completed throughout the game - all of them provide a coin reward.
For every day that you play the game, you will receive a daily bonus. The amount of you receive steadily increases up to 1,000,000 , and is always the reward for a day that is not a multiple of 5 (on those days, the bonus is a Decoration).
As the name implies, you must play daily to continue getting new bonuses. If you miss a day, however, you can avoid going back to the beginning bonuses by paying a certain number of  . For example, if you visit your village every day for 87 days, but don't play on the 88th day, the next time you visit your village a pop-up will appear, giving you the option to pay 9  to continue where you left off. If you don't pay that amount, the bonuses drop back to Day 1.
Sell Decorations and Fun BuildingsEdit
You can sell decorations and fun buildings. But the sale prices are VERY small compared to the purchase price. Any items bought with acorns will sell for only 5 . Items bought with coins sell for only 5% of the purchase price.
