I've seen many a cute piggy bank, and I'm pleased to have found even more - including the Chalk It To Me piggy bank. This ceramic bank even comes with chalk and a cloth wipe! [via Swiss Miss]
I'm not a video game fan, so I'd never heard of Monster Hunter until I came across the Monster Hunter piggy banks, and got curious. But who needs to know about the game? The banks - this king pig, and the sheep pig - are just darn cute. Update on July 9, 2012: I'm no longer finding these.
There are some lovely banks made for young children - but who says their use has to be limited to kids? Mini Moderns has four different bone china money boxes. [via Babygadget] Update on July 9, 2012: I'm not finding this one any more.
And Tiffany has banks in the form of pigs, bunnies, and elephants.
For something oriented to adults, take a look at the handmade piggy banks by Suzanne Crane, which seem to combine "cute" and "lovely." They're available in seven different glaze/trim color combinations.
Finally, for something really out of the ordinary, take a look at the skull banks from Medieval Collectibles.
