Going through the tray and tube - accumulator preform gets into the zone of forks system of automatic feed workpieces into the zone of coinage.
Next (see images):

1. Fork delivers a preform in zone coinage, pushing forward previously minted coin;
2. Fork has filed preform for stamping and went back behind the new workpiece;
3. The process of coinage.

Blanks are loaded into inclined pipe-accumulator (one by one with the palm) in 1907.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Quote:

"The first coin press arrived at the Carson Mint in 1869 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was manufactured by Morgan and Orr Iron Founders & Steam Engine Builders, and weighed 12,000 pounds. As was the custom of the day, the coin press was painted with a large number "1" to signify the first press located in the coiners department. On February 11, 1870, Coin Press No. 1 struck the first coin, a Seated Liberty Dollar bearing the soon to be famous "CC" mintmark. The steam powered press could produce 100 coins a minute, over one coin a second".
The similar equipment and in Petersburg Mint in the 70s. XIX century.
Billets are loaded into a tube with the palm, one after another.

Quote (Russian language):

"В 1775-м году Мэтью Болтон познакомился с великим английским физиком и изобретателем Джеймсом Ваттом. В голове Ватта уже созрела мысль об изобретении нового двигателя, работающего на энергии пара - идея возникла у него в 1774-м году, но реально воплотилась в жизнь спустя 10 лет, в 1784-м, когда двигатель был официально запатентован. После того, как Ватт поделился своими идеями с Болтоном, они сразу же стали компаньонами.

И Болтон, и Ватт решили расширить производство и основать монетный двор. Сначала на нём были установлены монетные прессы старого образца, а сам двор находился ещё не в Soho. В 1786-м году Болтон выиграл подряд на 100 тонн монет для британской Восточно-африканской компании. Монеты, отчеканенные на этом временном монетном дворе, предназначались для обращения в Бенкулу (Bencoolen) на Суматре. В 1786 - 1788-х годах Болтон чеканил монеты для Сьерра Леоне. А в 1786-м году монетный двор Болтона посетила российская императрица Екатерина II и закупила оборудование Болтона и Ватта для монетного двора в Санкт - Петербурге, а монетный двор получил заказ на изготовление монет для российской Восточно-африканской компании (напомню, что в собственности Российской Империи находился остров Мадагаскар). Но это не были первые монеты, отчеканенные на энергии пара, умело использованной Джеймсом Ваттом! Первые монеты, отчеканенными на паровом монетном станке, былиотчеканены в Soho летом 1789-го года. Это были токены для Roe & Company, они предназначались для расчётов между клиентами этой компании

Rough translation:

Quote
I think that in 1775 , the year Matthew Boulton met the great English physicist and inventor James Watt, Watt was already thinking about inventing a new engine running on steam power - the idea came to him in the year 1774, but it took practical shape only after 10 years , in 1784, when the engine was officially patented. After Watts shared his ideas with Bolton, they immediately became partners.

Bolton and Watt decided to expand production and to establish a mint. First, an old-fashioned screw press mint was established, the factory was not yet in Soho. In the year 1786, Bolton won a contract for 100 tons of coins for the British East Africa Company. Coins minted at this time mint were intended for circulation in Benkulu (Bencoolen) in Sumatra. In the years 1786 - 1788 Bolton minted coins for Sierra Leone. And in 1786 , Bolton's Mint was visited by the Russian Empress Catherine II, who purchased equipment for a Bolton and Watt mint in St. - Petersburg. The Mint was commissioned to manufacture coins for Russian East African Company (remember that the Russian Empire owned the island of Madagascar). But these were not the first coins minted by a steam engine, skilfully made by James Watt! The first coins minted on a steam machine press were made in Soho in the summer of 1789 . These were tokens for Roe & Company, intended for payments of clients of the company.
