Pondus loves coins - big or small, he'll take them all.
You can give him as much or as little money as you like.
When he's full, treat yourself to something special. Or bring the coins into your local Danske Bank branch.
Pondus is named after a real penguin that lived in Copenhagen Zoo in the 1960s. Pondus, wearing a red scarf, appeared in a series of children's books and has been used as Danske Bank's moneybox mascot since 1967. Pondus swam over to Northern Ireland in 2009, and if you have a Junior Savings Account, you'll get to take him home.
