Nathan Tobiason wanted a creative way to display change—spare change that is. Most often this is not showcased but rather hidden from others and even ourselves. Take a look under your couch cushions, car seats, or behind that book shelf that hasn’t been moved in years. If you do, you will probably find some coinage. Tobiason went to design school and has been designing functional and aesthetic pieces under the umbrella of Revol-Design. He lives in San Diego.
The Vertical Coin Bank is the latest edition to Revol-Design. It brings the coins out from obscurity and into your living room as a center piece or contemporary décor. It is composed of two transparent sheets of acrylic (through which the coins are visible) and housed in a subtle wooden frame. The width does not allow for coins to overlap adding to the pattern of the dropped coins. The Vertical Coin Bank comes in sizes ranging from 12”x12” to 12”x47”. It also has the option of being a wall hanger or a stand-alone. At the base is a magnetic section that can be removed for quick release of all of the coins.
This is a fun way to display the coins in your home. My wife and I have a large glass vase that is slowly accumulating coins. Once it is full we will each make a guess as to how much money it contains. Whoever is closest to the actual dollar amount will get to decide how to spend it. It would be great to have the Vertical Coin Bank prominently displayed in our apartment. This would help to attain coins faster by keeping it in the forefront of the mind as well as adding personality to any room.
POP in the coins and let it add up!
