We have something interesting for you in our VSCO Girl Coins and Piggy Bank cursor pack. A piggy bank, sometimes called a penny bank or money box, is the traditional name of a coin container where children store their pocket money or what is left of them. They are usually made of ceramic or porcelain. Piggy banks became a pedagogical device to teach children about thrift and saving. Many financial service companies use piggy banks as logos for their savings products.
