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.
