Piggy bank history
Before they became corporate gifts, the hand-made (how else back then?) piggy banks served for a totally different purpose. In the center of England, “pygg” meant some sort of clay that was used for making different household objects such as jars.
Often, people kept the money in kitchen jars and jars of clay (pygg jars). In the 18th century, spelling the word "pygg" has changed and the term “pygg jars” became “pig bank” so the piggy banks have begun to be made from other materials including glass, plaster and plastic.
From here we can draw the conclusion that, despite the fact they didn’t have the same meaning, the piggy banks were from the beggining personalized or custom-made. Another theory, usually given for the germanic origins, says that in Germany and in the neighbouring countries the pig represents the symbol of luck and welfare.
