Title: COIN DISPENSER
Abstract:
A coin dispenser dispenses coins having plural coin diameters ranging from a smallest coin diameter to a largest coin diameter. The coin dispenser comprises: a plurality of coin tubes, each coin tube being configured to hold a stack of coins having a same coin diameter, a base plate arranged under the coin tubes, the base plate forming support area's for supporting the stacks of coins held by the coin tubes, the base plate having dispensing edges each forming an edge of the base plate, each dispensing edge associated with a respective coin tube and being spaced apart, in a respective dispensing direction, from the support area of that coin tube, and a plurality of actuators, each actuator associated with a respective coin tube and configured to push the coin at the lowest position in the respective stack of coins held by the coin tube in the respective dispensing direction from the support area to an over the respective dispensing edge. The dispensing edges each comprise a centre edge part and two peripheral edge parts, the centre edge parts extending along the plane of the base plate in a direction perpendicular to the respective dispensing direction over a width equal to or less than the smallest coin diameter. The peripheral edge parts are adjacent to the ends of the centre edge part and extending along the plane of the base plate, the peripheral edge parts diverging in the dispensing direction whereby a width between the peripheral edge parts perpendicular to the dispensing direction increases, as seen in the dispensing direction, from equal to or less than the smallest coin diameter at the centre edge part to equal to or larger than the largest coin diameter.
