Girl Scout Coin Banks
Here's a collection of official Girl Scout "piggy banks" from years gone by.
Promotional cardboard & tin "A Girl Scout is Thrifty" coin banks. The center one says Compliments of Meier & Frank Co., Girl Scout Headquarters, Second Floor. Unknown year.
This similar in size (about 5") Juliette Low coin bank wasn't offered in the GS catalog, and was made of metal. I have no proof, but I think it may have been a council-level type gift to bigger donors - like the taller copper GS statue (8") that was only available to councils to give away (for a time.)
1983 - Although it doesn't say "Girl Scout" this Cookie coin bank was offered in the GS catalogs and shows Girl Scout cookies. Shown here are also some tie-ins to the design.
2015 - may have only been available online, because I can't find it in the GS catalogs.
4" x 4.5", ceramic.
2012? Likely from the era. Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Volkswagen-style ceramic bank. Bumper says "Girl Scout celebrate 100 years" 1912-2012.
2020? - As of 5/22 - on clearance!

Girl Scout "Piggy" Banks | Coin Holders
This coin bank is from the Trophy Nut Company. Once the snacks were eaten, it could be used as a piggy bank. Unknown year.
