Fun Facts About Piggy Bank
During the Middle Ages, people stored their money in a bowl or jug in the kitchen.
Metal was expensive. People used kitchenware made from an orange pottery called pygg. As time went on, the English language changed. “Pygge” became “pigge” and then “pig.”
In the 19th century, potters began making banks that were actually shaped like a pig. The technique stuck and even today, children use “piggy banks.” In ancient Greece, banks were often shaped like a temple. Money boxes have been found in the ruins of Pompeii.
A 650-year-old English piggy bank recently sold for $10,000.
Today, piggy banks usually have a removable button on the bottom to access cash.
Traditionally, a piggy bank only had a slit on the top for putting money in the bank. To get the loot, you had to smash the pottery. Hence the phrase, “break the bank.”
During the Great Depression, many banks failed and people lost their money. People who grew up in that era are often still skeptical of banks. It’s not uncommon for people to keep extra money in their home – in cookie jars, under the bed, or in drawers.
