This Japanese alarm clock sure makes it in the list of the most annoying ones (see list below) available. The BanClock only shuts up when you insert a 500 or 100 Yen coin.

The design of the Banclock is actually very stylish: Simple and a touch of retro created through the use of old school LED digits.

If you feed the Banclock each morning with a 500 Yen coin you can save up 50,000 Yen until the piggy bank alarm clock becomes full.
With 100 Yen coins you only collect 15,000 Yen.
A BanClock sells for 5,985 Yen (~$50) in Japan.
