okay, that’s neat. Now make one where the inner mouth extends to eat the coin, pulling it back into the bank.

I love it but it’s kind of wasted as a coin bank. Also It’d look sweet with some diffused light in the top part of the head :smiley:

In space, no one can hear you save.

I came here to say, “how dare this not work by eating coins with its tongue”

All I see is a bunch of common US minted coins… I can get those anywhere. I wanna see some real alien coins not these boring round phony metal looking things. Lumpy stuff with weird markings, glowing, hissing, strange to the touch alien coins. and also I don’t want to see a bunch of Peso’s or Canadian coins being passed off as alien coins.

“The Triganic Pu is a unit of galactic currency, with an exchange rate of eight Ningis
to one Pu. This is simple enough, but, since a Ningi is a triangular
rubber coin six thousand eight hundred miles along each side, no one has
ever collected enough to own one Pu. Ningis are not negotiable
currency, because the Galactibanks refuse to deal in fiddling small
change.”
