A blown glass round ‘money box’ measuring around 15cm wide and tall, with a slot opening at the top.

The Penny Pinchers’ colour choices and engraved names are based on the bright and unique Australian bank notes, along with some slang nicknames for our cash: $5 pink ‘prawn,’ $10 blue ‘heeler,’ $20 red ‘lobster,’ $50 yellow ‘pineapple,’ and $100 green ‘Melba.’

The bright colours of Australian money are a big talking point for tourists and it is enriching to know more about the people on the notes along with some Aussie nicknames for our currency.
