How does an item like this come into existence? Does a guy at the manufacturer get a light bulb over his head one day and say, "What this country needs is a bank shaped like a pitcher monkey looking toward home for signs"...? Then, once you have the idea and the tooling, how many do you make? A thousand? Ten million?
What pitch is the chimp bank going to throw? Better get the team doctor to look at that finger, first.
A different sort of monkey grip.
