An embodiment of the invention is illustrated; bers in the shaft 6 prevent additional coins from by way of example, in the accompanying drawdropping into the shaft 6 when it is barred. ings in4which: A sleeve H is rotatably mounted on a pin 28.
Fig. 1 shows the machine in front elevation. Itis rotated by a spur wheel 24 driven by a second Fig. 2 is a cross section through the counti g spurwheei 25 keyed on the shaft 26 of the roller shaft. ii. The shaft 26 also carries a bevel wheel 21 Fig. 3 is a section on line 3-4 of Fig. 2. driven by a second bevel wheel 28. This latter Fig. 4 is a section on line 4-4 of Fig. 2. is shiztable on the shaft 29 and acted upon by a 30 The machine comprises two inclined chutes 2 pring ill which maintains the two bevel wheels 30 open at their upper end and provided with feed 21. 28 m h Th shaft 19 s riven by n clined shaft 5 extends from each shaft 4 and leads When this magnet is currentless the spring 30 to a vertical shaft 6 (Fig. 2), The shaft 5 can be presses the bevel wheel 28 into mesh with the hermore it is necessary to prevent more than transmission 37 or the like drives a pap roll 38 a. predetermined number of (301115 from dropping slipped onto a vertical shaft 38 The nape uninto the shai't 6. For this purpose barring memwound from this paper roll is guided, by two guide hers are provided both in the, shaft 4 and also funnels 40 between the pile of coins and the miier in the, upper part of the shaft 6. These barring and wraps round the pile oi coins. The projecting theyare connected in a circuit, pull curved blockblades 4 i mounted on the roller i5. Twc shearing ing members 8 biased by springs 9, out or the members 42 (Fig. 3) sever the paper strip after shafts by attracting armatures 10 connected with a predeternuned number oi revolutions by the the barring members. The coins then drop i'reeclosing 0! an electric circuit current when the coin piles have been wrapped, the switching over is attained by the attraction of the armature oi the lever 35 by the electromagnet 36 so that the bevel wheel 28 is disengaged from the. bevel wheel 21. The pile of and the roller to a standstill. The pile of coins is ejected from the winding device by the depressing of a key Q3. The key lifts the pile at one side so that it strikes against the flap i2 and drops into a trough M,
A counting mechanism may be provided for the individual shafts, and a bell signal or an incandescent lamp can also be operated when a coin pile has been wrapped.

packaging device, means for actuating the peels and packaging aging device, and electric means under the control of the weight of the coins in the container for throwing in the actuameans when the prescribed number of coins is in the containen,
2. In a machine for counting and packaging coins, containers for device arranged on each container and including a plurality of arcuate barring members, a spring for moving each barring member into the path of the coins entering the container, an electromagnet allotted to each barring member for withdrawing it from the a circuit connected to the electromagnets, means controlled by the weight of the coins for making the circuit before, and for breaking it after the prescribed number of coins is in the container, a packaging device, means for actuating the packaging device, and electric means under the com trol or" the weight of the coins in the container for throwing in the actuating means when the prescribed number of coins is in the container.
