Aluminum - Mirror polished.
The MONEYPHANT is a stylish and adorable way to save your coins.
In 1987, Jørgen Møller and his grandchild designed the elephant , which went on to become a global favourite. Over the years more elephant-themed designs followed, including cutlery, picture frames, a key ring and a set of dinnerware for children.
Møller teamed up with his great-grandchild to come up with this sleek piggybank. The MONEYPHANT is a wonderful gift and a great way to teach a young person about saving up money.
The MONEYPHANT is made from mirror polished stainless steel, and the design bears the hallmarks of classic Scandinavian technique; it is strong, elegant and highly functional.
Not only is it a charming and stylish addition to any child's bedroom, it can also make saving up money fun as the coins make a satisfying ‘kerching!’ as they are popped into the stainless steel animal.
Product designer Jørgen Moller, working alongside his grandchild, first came up with the elephant character in 1987. The stylised little creature now appears on cutlery, picture frames, key rings and money boxes, beloved by children (and many adults) ever since.
It is beautifully made from stainless steel with a mirror polish that reflects the light from its iconic simplified shape.

"The iconic Elephant from the Danish brand Georg Jensen is designed by the industrial designer and architect Jørgen Møller. The idea of this design came from Jørgen Møller's grandchild in 1987 and ever since, the elephant has been a favorite in many homes and also an appreciated gift for housewarming parties for instance.
When designer Jørgen Møller first came up with this abstract and stylish elephant, little did he imagine that it would capture the hearts of so many and become an iconic piece of Georg Jensen history. The original chunky aluminium character is still today a beautiful and practical talking point in any kitchen or bar." * from Scandinavian Design
Jørgen Møller was a strong believer that all good design had to start with the practical and functional. However when that was fulfilled, he was happy to introduce both beauty and humour in his work. The elephant series has become one of Georg Jensen’s most recognisable collections.
Solidly made from aluminium, the Elephant makes a charming and unusual gift.
