Here Piggy, Piggy

A modern twist on a treasured classic, this white porcelain piggy bank does away with the usual cork bottom and features an innovative funnel opening that can be used for both depositing and retrieving money. Now you can drop a handful of coins in all at once (instead of the ol' one-at-a-time method) and easily pour out some spare change if you need to. Made in China.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Beloved for centuries, the piggy bank was actually made by accident. In middle English (around the 15th century), the word "pygg" referred to a type of clay used for making various household objects such as jars. People often saved money in kitchen pots and jars made of pygg, called "pygg jars". Somewhere along the way, potters received requests for "pygg banks" and instead made banks shaped like pigs.

      Comments about Coink Bank:

      Cute and totally functional. It is exactly as pictured. The coink bank has lots of personality and fits perfect with decor. Even though it stands out because of it uniqueness it can also blend in and not be so noticeable as any old piggy bank. The funnel is great for putting in all at once and taking out little by little, because hey, the idea is to save money right??

      Comments about Coink Bank:

      Coink caught my eye when I saw him on "The Price Is Right." Just had to get him to replace the old tin can in the kitchen where we pitched in our pocket change....and he doesn't clash with the decor! Love the funnel top for quick in and out. I'm sure we have at least $50 worth of change and he's barely half full!

      Service and delivery comments:

      I was extremely pleased with customer service provided by Uncommon Goods. Coink was packed with great care and arrived in a couple of days. I wish every company had service this fast.

          When my toddler started to understand the concept of money, I went on the hunt for a piggybank that he could use and enjoy. This one is perfect - not too childish, and easy to get money in and out of.

              Comments about Coink Bank:

              I gave this as a gift to my sister, an interior designer. She loved it. It's actually for her baby, but of course that kid won't have a clue what a bank is for a few years so it's really for my sister.

              The package is pretty nice. It's well padded, the design is simplistic, like the pig, and it doesn't waste any space. The package is green also, if color coordinating is important.

              The finish is pretty smooth. The only quality issue I would see is in the eyes. You only notice it if you stick your finger in there or if you dropped a light in there so the eyes light up. I seriously doubt it would be an issue for anyone.

              The funnel at the top is a little large for my taste as far as looks go, but the function of it is very nice. I'm not the type to put bills in a piggy bank, but it Does allow for those to easily fit in and out of the pig.

              Service and delivery comments:

              For the cheapest shipping option I was impressed. It came Really quick.
