The cute and smooth piggy banks we are used to has a much deeper hidden meaning. The earliest known piggy banks date back to the 13th century from the Indonesian Majapahit Empire. This Hindu-Buddhist empire was vastly spread across many present day South-East Asian countries like Thailand, Java, Jakarta, Malaysia, Phillipines, Singapore etc. These regions were rich and sort of the global trade hubs back then.
Did you know? From ancient days till now the Pig is considered a symbol of abundance, fertility and good fortune. Pigs are known to eat well and give birth to many babies at once. Simillarly, it was believed that inserting little coins everyday in a Piggy bank will help to increase the money many fold quickly.
In the Javanese language the word 'Celengan' was related to the wild boar, savings, wealth etc. Thus the early piggy banks were crafted in the shape of the wild boar using clay to depict the animal sloshing happily in mud. It had a opening to put in coins, as the entire figure depicted good fortune and wealth. Also in Hindu belief, the protector of all the Universes Lord Vishnu 🙏 took the incarnation of Varaha ( the red boar ) to lift mother earth out of water. Mother earth is also lord Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. She is also worshipped in Japan as goddess Kisshōten ✨
From the Majapahit Empire, scholars, Buddhist monks & travellers took the concept to China. And via. the silk road the concept reached European countries to take various forms as the current day piggy bank.
