Classic Piggy Bank with a twist. The design is very modern and colorful and cheerful. It's made of ceramic and very large: 11 x 16 x 15.2 inches ; 2.6 pounds. It's not the cheapest personalized piggy bank here featured but that's because of the quality material and the huge size. There are only a few of these left in stock.

 

Origin of the Piggy Bank

The origin of the piggy bank is surprisingly unclear. Pigs are historically associated with luck and this is one of the possible origin of the pig being used as a vessel to save change. Another explanation is that the material being used in the dark ages "pygg" to bake common household containers with at some point has been confused with the pig shape and people started baking pigs as containers for change. No matter what the exact origin the tradition stuck and to this day we keep change in ceramic pigs.
