Go to a toy store or maybe even a thrift store and look for a hollow plastic dog like the one in the link below. Carve a silver dollar sized slot in the back and you're good to go.

thank you so much, ill go buy a plastic dog asap.
Perhaps you can find a stuffed animal upon which you can make an incision .
Then take out some of the stuffing and insert  a plastic  container ,or maybe sew
a heavy duty nylon pouch for the money bag and insert that.
You could then sew in a  self healing zipper ( they have two zipper pulls) into the
incision. The slightly opened zipper could then function as the coin slot, or
unzip all the way for that stash of cash.

Thank you for your help, i´ll give a try to everyone´s idea and tell you how it came out!
Do you have a picture of what you have in mind, or is any vaguely dog-like bank OK?

any vaguely dog-like bank is OK.
