Question Hardware help ?

Hello I'm new here and this is my first thread. I'm looking to build some piggy banks, and want them to look really good. My question is the plug in the bottom, I'm looking to glue a plastic plug with a screw in the middle of it for easy access, one product 2 pieces. Maybe like 2-3 diameter would work. I've searched for 2 days and can't find even the name for this product. I found a rubber plug at home depot, but just don't like the look. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. First off, piggy banks are not supposed to have easy access to get the money out. I remember many a day rattlin' a butterknife in the slot and shaking the poor piggy upside down to get change out. I am not sure I follow your screw in the plug idea. But here's a site that sells rubber plugs for piggy banks:

Ok on the right track, think of a plug housing that you glue in and in the center you have a removable twist screw, but all one unit.
