Terramundi, based in London, supply Money Pots to Gift Shops across the UK. To find out about their please go to giftshopwholesalers.co.ukTerramundi was established by Dario Illari and Jacquie Ryle over 16 years ago in the upper floor of a flat in Kentish Town, the Studio is now somewhat larger and is located in Tottenham Hale, London.

We recently released a range of Deluxe money pots which are around 3 times bigger than the original money Pots.


Our money pots have been traditionally used in Italy for over 2000 years and their hand thrown design has remained unchanged. The British Museum houses examples of these ancient money pots.


Once the first coin is dropped the money pot must be fed until full upon which time it must be smashed whilst making a wish. It is customary to replace the pot and spend the money on ‘good things’, they bring good fortune.

Money pots are sometimes used to house a candle or a plant once smashed. The best way to break your money pot is to get a chisel or the back of a hammer and place it inside the money slot – slowly lever the top and you should be able to pop the top off – you can now use the money pots to house a plant, sweets or pens. If using a hammer or a chisel to smash your money pot or even dropping the money pot within a plastic bag, please take care to wear protective goggles.

Terramundi money pots are hand thrown in Italy and hand painted in London. They stand between 17cms and 19cms in height.

Each original money pot contains a separate fortune coin and hold approximately £200 in mixed silver. Each Deluxe money pot holds approximately £1000 in mixed silver.
