NatWest pigs born again

More than ten years after they were withdrawn, NatWest has relaunched its iconic range of NatWest piggy banks.

Savers of a certain age will have fond memories of the NatWest piggy bank family which the bank used to encourage saving, offering a new family member as more money was banked.

Starting with baby Woody, the family progressed through Annabel, Maxwell, Lady Hillary up to Sir Nathaniel Westminster when the savings account reached £100.

Saving accounts opened between now and April 14th will receive a special gold Woody to start their collection and will be entered into a free draw with a £10,000 grand prize.

“We are thrilled that the NatWest pigs are back as part of this great prize draw, as historically they are the face of NatWest savings,” said Helen Page, NatWest marketing director.

The NatWest is now likely to become the best savings account for encouraging the saving habit among UK kids, as well as adults who never quite managed to reach the full set.

First launched in 1983, the piggy family has become increasingly valuable, with a full set now worth £400.
