PURPOSE: To distribute coins by providing a large diameter coin restriction section that is pressed to an upper part of a large sized coin to block a small diameter coin path entrance and a small diameter coin restriction section that is brought into contact with a lower part of a small sized coin to guide the coin to a small sized coin path.
CONSTITUTION: A correct coin selected by a coin selection section 2 discriminating counterfeit of coins is rolled on a coin path 7 and reaches a shutter 12. When the coin is a large sized coin F, the upper part of the coin F is brought into contact with a large sized coin restriction section 17 of the shutter 12 extended and energized into the path 7 by a spring member 20 and the shutter 12 is turned by a rolling force of the coin F to be retracted from the path 7 to close the entrance of a small sized coin path 22. Thus, the coin F is guided to a large sized coin path 23. On the other hand, when the coin is a small sized coin G, the lower part of the coin G is brought into contact with a small sized coin restriction section 18 of the shutter 12 and the coin G is guided with the small sized coin restriction section 18 toward the entrance of the small sized coin path 22 to change its direction.
