The piggy bank is the traditional name of a coin container normally used by children. The piggy bank is known to collectors as a still bank because it doesn't move. Piggy banks are usually made of ceramic or porcelain. They are generally painted and serve as a device to teach thrift and savings to children. Pygg is an orange colored clay commonly used during the Middle Ages as a cheap material for pots to store money. They were called pygg pots or pygg jars. By the 18th century, the term "pig jar" had evolved to "pig bank". As earthenware was supplanted by other materials, such as glass, plaster, and plastic, the name gradually began to refer specifically to the shape of the bank, instead of what was used to make it.
