Typically when we come home, our desk is the first place we stop. We take off our coat, put down our bag, and empty the change from our pockets. So finding a coin bank that we could keep near our desk seemed pretty logical. It'd help us save all the spare change that seems to float aimlessly around our desk and drawers and it'd probably be helpful in securing quarters for laundry day. Additionally, there are a lot of nice looking banks around these days and they'd surely be a nice looking addition to a well-styled office. After the jump are some of our favorites.
Duell Coin Bank
This bank is made up of an interesting combination of materials and concept. It is silicone and porcelain and features two separate coin compartments. The idea is that you collect coins separately for two different things (in this case, spending and saving). We could see this as a good way to separate quarters from your change for parking meters, laundry, etc... Make a game out of it (perhaps a "his" and "hers"), using the provided pencil to designate sides and see who comes out saving more!
Mechanical Kitty Coin Bank
This is just outright super cute. The kitty will pop up and scoop your change into it's box while repeating some crazy phrase. This one is for the cat lovers, definitely, but we have collected a whole slew of other tech-y coin banks if you're interested.
Bank in the Form of a Pig $125
This very formal piggy bank has always made us laugh. It's been around for a while and although it's a nice jokey coin bank, the actual pig is stunningly modeled. It is sure to be a conversation starter wherever you put it in your house.
Theosarus Piggy Bank $68
Made of high quality porcelain and produced in Germany, this highly stylized piggy bank would likely go great with any minimalisitic decor. It's a tad pricey for the size but it seems as though it'll last you and your kids and your kids' kids forever. (That is to say, if we're still even using coins at that point!)
Bubble Bank $300
And we've saved the best (and craziest) for last. If you're looking for an eccentric coin bank/art piece, this is it. This beautiful, hand blow glass coin bank is pretty big and will certainly be a striking addition in your home office. Oh, but where do you get the coins out? Good question. Break the thing open. If you're looking to spend a lot of money on an ephemeral coin bank, this might be the one for you! But it'll definitely look good as long as it's in one piece.
