Piggy bank (sometimes penny bank or money box) is the traditional name of a coin container; usually used by children. The piggy bank is known to collectors as a "still bank" as opposed to the "mechanical banks" popular in the early 20th century. These items are also often used by corporations for promotional purposes. Their shape is most often that of a little pig and many financial services companies use piggy banks as logos for their savings products.

Piggy banks are typically made of ceramic or porcelain, and therefore are also known as porcelain pigs.[1] They are generally painted and serve as a pedagogical device to teach the rudiments of thrift and savings to children; money can be easily inserted. Many piggy banks have a rubber plug located on the underside; others are made of vinyl and have a removable nose for easy coin access. Some incorporate electronic systems which calculate the amount of money deposited.
