Abstract (en)

Coin dispenser for coin-operated machines, comprising a coin collecting hopper provided with a rotary extraction disc (1) which includes means (3) for carrying coins individually, and an arm (6) which deflects coins (13) towards an outlet, where an extraction trip (7) is placed. In addition, the dispenser includes means for detecting the denomination or value of coins (4, 4a) carried by the extraction disc (2) before they leave the hopper, as well as a deflection mechanism which determines if each coin exits or not depending on whether its value agrees with that of the coin to be returned in each case. <IMAGE>
