This pop-up cash box mainly consists of a plastic base, hinged top cover and a removable top rear cover section which enables access to a locking device. A basket for storing coins and bills within the cash box is also provided. The top cover opening is normally actuated by a magnet which releases a latch lever that permits an opening spring action. The opening spring action pushes the top cover to make it pivot about a cover pivoting point. The top cover and pivoting means are designed to enable the top cover to partially fall within the cash box. The cash box opening is therefore partially cleared. The closing of the top cover is made by hand. In addition, a keylock (not shown) is provided which permits one to open the top cover in case of program or magnet failure.
