If you're going to accumulate a bunch of coins, why not do it in style? My latest find is this wonderful money box sold by Hus & Hem; it comes in yellow, green and red. [via Retro to Go] Update on July 9, 2012: These are no longer being sold by Hus & Hem, and I haven't found them elsewhere.
If you'd prefer a pig, you could get this piggy bank from Jonathan Adler, available in pink and blue.
If you like to see your coins accumulate, you might like the glass piggy bank from Roost, available from Velocity Art and Design - and the one at VivaTerra, shown above, seems to be the same product. Update on July 8, 2012: I'm no longer finding this bank at either of those stores, but you get either this large bank or a smaller one from Fawbush & Schulz.
I was amazed to find this piggy bank from Nelles: "sand-cast bronze and aluminum coin bank, in the form of a flying pig with wheels." Take a look at Scott's Titanic bank and King Kong bank, too.
Richard Barley shared a picture of this cochon tirelire some time ago, and I finally decided to go find it on the web - because a piggy bank focused on saving for vacation sounds good to me!
And finally, here's the moneypig from Smool and Royal Goedewaagen. There are two version: the one above (the Pig Pocket), and one with a floral design. And yes, the nose is detachable for retrieving the money. [via MoCoLoco]
