Trapped coin key ring puzzle

The clear plastic disk swivels round on the key ring. The puzzle is to remove the coin that is trapped inside the disk by a number of ball bearings. Every time you tap the puzzle so that the coin starts to drop out, the ball bearings roll down and stop the coin from going any further. The sure way of solving the puzzle requires a flick of your finger – but you need to know where to flick. This is a well designed and manufactured puzzle.
