Royal Mint’s Piggy Bank

The Royal Mint has unveiled n 18-carat gold hand-crafted piggy bank costing £100,000 ($120,000).
Described as the “world’s most expensive” porcine pocket money holder, it was designed by Bristol silversmiths Phillip Kydd and son James.
The model is the first piggy bank in the Royal Mint’s 1,100-year history and forms part of the company’s new range of gifts and jewellery.

Helen Cooper, from the company, said it was “expecting to sell some” of oink-stravagant pieces despite the price tag. She also said: “We’re renowned for our gold and silver coins, so it was a natural step to create an equally exquisite piggy bank. This 18-carat gold Minty will be made to order, and hand-crafted to ensure it is the most luxurious piggy bank in existence.”
