Abstract: A savings bank with a music bell is disclosed and comprises a control stick, a control lamella and other components. The locating end of the control stick and the control lamella is rotated by a coin deposited in the guide rail, and is located so as to lock the fly wheel again after the drive gear installed on the music bell has rotated by one revolution.
Abstract: A visually interesting coin sorter and bank receives a group of random coins in a coin receiving chamber and ejects the coins one-at-a-time to roll to the bottom of a rotatable transparent spiral elevator plate or wheel. The spiral wheel lifts the rolling coins toward the center of the wheel until caught by size restrictions in the spiral to be then moved through an arc and to drop through a proper slot to form sorted stacks of coins. The spiral wheel is driven through an electric motor which is automatically turned on as soon as one or more coins are dropped in the chamber. Aftet the last coin is sorted the motor is automatically turned off. A coin sensing lever in the coin receiving chamber releases a cycle timer to close a switch to start the motor. The rotating spiral wheel drives an ejector slide to eject the coins one-at-a-time from the chamber.
Abstract: An amusement device has a large transparent circular funnel element having a convexly flared inner wall and an outlet. A hemispherical reflector has a concentric opening and is disposed below and spaced apart from the funnel element with the outlet extending through the opening. The funnel element is supported by a circular container. A transparent hemispherical plastic dome covers the funnel element and includes a pair of coin chutes molded therein. A coin placed at the top of a chute and released is guided to roll down the chute to be tangentially injected through an opening in the dome to roll on edge around the funnel surface. The reflector causes the rolling coin to appear to be floating in air and produces a reflection of the coin. The coin will spiral downward and drop through the outlet. A gong is mounted below the outlet and is struck by the coin. The container includes a door in its sidewall for access to a coin collection tray disposed beneath the outlet.
