Coin Chest Puzzle

Modified version of Treasure Chest to allow coins be placed into it. One face was replaced and two corners were cut into.

Coin Chest Puzzle is a shape-mod suggested by David Tzur. The idea was to turn a mass produced Treasure Chest into a piggy bank by making a slot in the center. The first prototype was a failure. It had only a slot in the center, but the slot was too small to pass even the smallest of coins. The second prototype has a big slot, big enough to pass a 2-euro coin. Unfortunately, such a big slot interferes with the inner mechanism that holds the puzzle together. The slot had to be extended into two of the corner pieces. As a consequence, a 2-euro coin can only be passed when those two corners are in place next to the center slot. Smaller coins pass without a problem.
