Snoopy Penny Bank

Vintage 2002 Snoopy Bank – Filled with Quarters – $170. Find it on eBay (affiliate links).

The only bank more ubiquitous than the Snoopy Doghouse Chex Bank is the Snoopy Penny Bank. Made by Anchor Hocking starting in 1979, the bank went through a few variations. The bank itself is heavy and made of glass with no opening to get out the coins. Either break it, or jimmy out the coins one by one with a knife. The original banks had the copyright embossed into the glass, but later editions just have a paper tag. There were a couple different boxes for the bank.

The one thing this bank has that all the other Snoopy Penny Banks don’t is black ears. These photos might be terrible, but it’s easy to tell what’s going on with the ears. Some kid took a marker or paint, then just colored them in. The strokes are pretty apparent and isn’t a nice, smooth factory finish.

How much is a Snoopy Penny Bank worth?

Just how many quarters are in this Snoopy Penny Bank? If it hits the $150 mark, then you’re getting a good deal on this bank. There’s not much that can go wrong with these, other than chipping the glass. For your basic display purposes, pick one up for under $15 and enjoy. For the collector, stick to banks in boxes for around $25-40.

We’re these made to be broken? Who wants a kid cutting their hand to get some pocket change? I never understood banks without stoppers.

A note on prices

When reviewing these articles, be sure to note the date. Market prices fluctuate with availability and interest in a subject. Putting a value on items can be nuanced and comes from the perspective of buying to enjoy in a collection. I also tend to be conservative with valuations to account for the ups and downs in market values.
