Pac-Man Coin Bank is cool for nerdy savings

by Gareth Mankoo

I wondered about how awesome my Mario Brothers coin box was. It didn’t need a lot of innovation, as coins quietly lined up as I kept adding them, to collect money for another awesome cartridge. That’s what made the whole collection of the 90’s possible. Now we pretty much do not need the coins to make a fortune for big games but the Pac-Man Coin Bank is still cool. It keeps the monsters of poverty away on a gloomy day.

What’s really amusing for Pac-Man fans is the fact that the typical game sound is somehow reproduced by the Coin Bank, every time you insert a coin.
