I have been a big fan of collectible and novelty banks for years. Collectible Banks have been around as promotional items for decades when Banks use to give them to customers for their business. I have a Rocket Bank I bought off eBay some time back (pictured below), that illustrates how creative institutions got to attract new customers. Mine might not look as good as the one below, but I am hoping to restore it to its full glory one day.
The banks below might not be vintage, but they are fun or geeky enough to maybe have kids start saving, or Adults a place to put all that pocket change.
