Fun Facts About Piggy Banks

Piggy banks have been around for a long, long time. The material often used for them is called Pygg. It dates back to the Middle Ages, and it was originally used because it was cheap. It is an orange color and was used to make pygg jars and pots. During the 18th century, pygg banks were introduced. From personalized piggy banks to generic versions, these keepsakes would come in handy whenever folks could save an extra coin or two.

Even though we no longer make coin holders out of the orange pygg clay, the banks are shaped like pigs to pay homage to this historical fact.
