For a fun way of saving up spare change, this lovely reproduction tin coin box is the perfect choice. Originally this type of donation box was placed in shops for people to donate money to buy food for cows. In the Hindu religion the cow is an holy animal, hence each one has an image of a cow. It attaches to the wall and makes an charismatic piece of decor as well as being highly practical. For an alternative use it would make lovely plant holder.
