Product Description

Note: Our level rating system is different than Hanayama's.  Hanayama's level 1 is equivalent to our level 5.... level 6 is equivalent to our level 10.

The Medallion is made from four separate pieces of metal, two of which form a central core, while the other two each contain two different maze tracks. The object of the puzzle is to find your way through all four mazes at the same time as the core smoothly glides apart. Then, after you get it back to where it started, you might feel so good about yourself that you’ll want to find a lanyard and string the medal around your neck, which can be worn showing either gold or silver.

The designer of the Medallion, Oskar van Deventer from Leidschendam in the Netherlands, started designing puzzles when he was
12, and has now been designing for over 30 years. The Medallion is now owned by Puzzle Master and produced by Hanayama, a Japanese company who is known for excellent quality and challenging puzzles.

Beautiful design! Very well crafted! Elegant but fairly easy.

As a review of both puzzles: They are both exceptionally made. Very fun to take apart and put together again. And great for impressing others who see them as toys and not brainteasers. The only reason I did not give the medallion a 5 star is because I haven't solved it yet. My bad, but since I can't prove its a 5 yet, I went for the four. I will update to 5 later if I solve and have fun too!

I got this puzzle yesterday and I managed to solve it relatively fast. I like its look and the idea, too. But one can solve it just by playing with it, if they get lucky to pass the one special place where a little precision is needed. I was also curios if there is a second way to put it back together, depending on how you place the two plates. But at one point it seems impossible for the second way, so I guess only one is the correct.

I received the Medallion for Christmas. I already have the L'Oeuf puzzle, and I thought this was somewhat similar. Rather than two plates that are interconnected (L'Oeuf), the Medallion has two plates that are connected to a medallion. The plates rotate independently of each other and the medallion itself is pulled apart or pushed together in order to get the metal studs aligned with the grooves in the plates. My first attempt to solve the puzzle took over an hour, and in that time I managed only to get it jumbled up and then returned to the starting orientation. At that point, I felt comfortable with the mechanics of the puzzle, and I carefully observed both sides of the puzzle and had it apart in about 10 minutes. Took about the same to get it back to the starting condition. If you find you need to force the puzzle to move, just ensure the medallion is pulled apart to exactly the correct width and you should find the plates turn smoothly. I expect with time it will get a little more forgiving and bind up less. Brilliantly designed and precisely manufactured. Pleasant to look at and a decent weight makes this one of my new favourites. A well deserved 5 stars.
