What is a coin dispenser?
Automatic coin dispensers are often found in retail settings, hooked to the end of a cash register. When the customer pays in cash, the machine automatically gives out the coin change, while the cashier hands out the bills. This saves a retail establishment 5 to 7 seconds on every cash sale, allowing customers to move through the line more quickly. Mobile cashiers, such as carhops, often wear manual coin dispensers on their belts.
