What is a Money Tin?
A Money Box (sometimes referred to as a charity can, money tin or collection tin) is the traditional name of a coin container made out of metal with a slot in the top, for depositing coins. Money Boxes serve a multitude of purposes, but are normally used by charities for fundraising, by children for saving and by corporations for promotional purposes –
Money Boxes are generally branded with a company logo or personal message and serve as a pedagogical device to teach the rudiments of thrift and savings. In South Africa and many other countries, money boxes form a vital part of the fundraising and charity industries; they can be seen at most till-points allowing for the passer-by to easily and safely donate their left-over coins and pocket shrapnel.
Although only recently popularized, the oldest Western find of a money box dates from the 2nd century BC Greek colony Priene, Asia Minor, and features the shape of a miniature Greek temple with a slit in the pediment. Money boxes of various forms were also excavated in Pompeii and Herculaneum, and appear quite frequently on late ancient provincial sites, particularly in Roman Britain and along the Rhine.
Can It’s money tins do not have an opening besides the slot for inserting coins, making them secure and safe, and would need to be opened with a can-opener or by other means, to obtain the money within. Make the most out of your money box by waiting until it is completely full before opening.
