COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION

HANDLING OF COINS OR OF PAPER CURRENCY OR SIMILAR VALUABLE PAPERS, e.g. TESTING, SORTING BY DENOMINATIONS, COUNTING, DISPENSING, CHANGING OR DEPOSITING
NOTE
-

In this subclass, the following terms or expressions are used with the meaning indicated:

"coins" also covers tokens of similar nature;
"paper currency or similar valuable papers" covers banknotes, bills, cheques, vouchers, securities, bonds or the like.

This suclass covers handling of "coins" or "paper currency" insofar as they carry distinctive value features representative of money or the like.
Informative references: - sorting in general B07C - handling paper sheets in general B65H - counting by weighing G01G - counting of objects in general, i.e. without discriminating of denominations, G06M

WARNING
-
The following IPC groups are not used in the CPC scheme. Subject matter covered by these groups is classified in the following CPC groups: G07D 13/00 covered by G07D 11/00 and subgroup.
