Kässeli Piggy Bank

Here’s a rather modern puzzle-like interpretation of the personal coin bank.

I have no idea if the nest comes with this or not, and it might be slightly contrived, but I kind of like it anyways.

Money Box by Kensaku Oshiro

Porcelain egg with coin slot. The only way to get your money out is to break the egg. Ironically, the egg costs more than it will likely hold, unless you fold up bills and stick them in there.

Harry Allen Limited Edition Red-Chrome Pig Bank

I pretty much love everything that Harry Allen has done, and the fact that Tobias Wong thought of this particular edition makes it quite collectible.

“This limited edition was conceived by Tobias Wong and Josée Lepage and is a C&M exclusive, limited to 100 pieces…Similar to the remainder of the work, it is cast out of 100% Resin, 5.25″ x 10″ x 18″ (13,5 x 25 x 46 cm) in size, closed with a solid cork and plated completely with red chrome.”

Sorry, it looks like the red isn’t available anymore, but if you’re interested in White, Pink, Gold or Chrome:

Midcentury Piggy Bank

For lack of a better adjective, this little piggy bank is really quite cute.

“This plump ceramic piggy was cast from a mid-century mold and will look great on your mantel or desk. There is a rubber stopper in the belly so you can get your hard-earned money out! Also, Pamela has put an envelope of money in each piggy so you may be a few cents (or even a hundred dollars!) richer. Comes in a smooth matte finish in soft white or pea green.”

Animal Money Bank

Designed by Bart Van Heesch, these ceramic money banks might just be the coolest thing ever to put your change in. The graphic shapes and colors are modern enough to work in adult-ish settings, so don’t worry if you don’t have kids to use as an excuse.

Dimensions vary.

Save Bank

Looking for a new way to save some change? This bank is something different and would be an effective way to save, since it actually requires manpower to retrieve whatever coins or bills you might have deposited. You actually saw through the dotted lines/cut marks in order to reveal a cardboard backing which is then removable and reusable (as the backside)…though I’m guessing that you wouldn’t want to since the dotted cut marks adds that extra little design element that sets this bank apart from the rest. Might make a good gift for someone with a modern eye and a tightened budget.
