Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR COIN RECYCLING
Abstract:
Implementations described and claimed herein provide systems and methods for sorting disc objects, such as coins, into customizable combinations. In one implementation, a singulator is configured to isolate a disc object from a batch of disc objects. A rail is disposed relative to the singulator, and gravity directs the disc object through the singulator onto the rail. A discriminator determines a size and a composition of the disc object as the disc object travels along the rail. The discriminator determines a denomination and a validity of the disc object based on the size and the composition. A sorter is in communication with the discriminator. The sorter ejects the disc object into a chute corresponding to the denomination and the validity.
