Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0858059A1] The coins or tokens Ä33Ü are to be delivered singly to an outlet point within the machine. In one version the coins are provided in vertical tube magazines Ä29Ü and the bottom coin is ejected by a controlled mechanism. This can be a plate Ä35Ü connected by a crank Ä37Ü to a rotary motor Ä38Ü. Each rotation of the motor results in a single coin being displaced. An alternative version has the coins in a rotary drum with an actuator controlled opening.
