Cardboard coin banks are a type of sealed paper tube or cylinder which are constructed with a slot in one end and are used to collect change and cash. A common use for cardboard coin banks is to gather donations for charities and non-profit causes by placing the coin banks at prominent locations within stores or at an event. Other uses include piggy banks, children’s savings banks and special funds savings containers.
Typically, coin banks are semi-strong and made using the same process as other tubes such as mailing tubes or shipping tubes using wood pulp and cardboard, adhesives and caps/plugs. The cardboard is cut into ribbons and then wrapped around a mandrel, typically using a strengthening adhesive of sorts and dried into the desired size of coin bank. The tubes are often covered in kraft paper, or another type of printed paper; the cardboard itself, or labels are able to be custom designed according to the use and purpose of the tube. Metal or plastic plugs or caps are used to seal the end of the tubes, and the top plug has a slot cut into it that is wide enough and long enough for change and paper money to be pushed through. Some tubes will have removable plugs while other tubes may have a more permanent seal at the ends, especially for tamper-proof purposes. Read More…
