Token batch counter

I need guidance on counting batch tokens up to 200 then stop.

Requirements:
Token size: Diameter 38.1mm. Thickens 3.81. All are color yellow with red writing.
Speed should be no more than 5 minutes for 200.
Chips would be fed from a 5 gallon bucket with 1000 tokens at most.

I am thinking a tube that would count as the token falls down, but not sure how to count tokens that fall sideways vs flat. Also 2 chips stuck together?

Or do I use a flat gravity counter.

I seen some counters on the project board that sort coins, which I dont need.

When is our assignment due to be handed in?

It looks like mostly a mechanical matter, how to make the tokens line up, one at the time.
Arduino is an electronical device…

Weight...

Mechanize this coin dispenser.

What is the weight of a token? Using weight is used in shops selling small komponents. Take a grab of stuff and put on a balance and divide the total by the weight of each item. It works for coins! I have tested.
Anyway You must be able to control the flow of tokens. Otherwise You might get a few too much if, lets say 3 or 4, drops down at the same time.

OP seems to have ghosted...

Seemed like a good idea at the time.
It’s a pretty common method of measuring small transient quantities.
