Product Info

Unlock the secrets of the Medallion puzzle, a beautifully crafted metal puzzle that will put your problem solving skills to the test. This intricate puzzle requires patience and persistence to solve, making it a great challenge for adults. With its sleek design and shiny finish, the Medallion puzzle from Hanayama Huzzle makes for a great decorative piece when solved.

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. The next challenge is to reassemble the pieces to its original sate. This medallion is designed by Dutch mastermind Oskar van Deventer who started designing brain teaser puzzles when he was in 12 years old.

Got this puzzle took me about an hour to take apart, then putting it back together another 30 minutes. If doesn't move smoothly then user doing something wrong. I really enjoyed this puzzle. This was my first one as trying to figure out what level to do. Trying to find more like this

Great puzzle. A little easier than I was expecting, but to be fair someone did kind of spoil it for me. It did however take me just under an hour to solve though, and even though I finished it, it's still a lot of fun to just fiddle around with.

Bought this puzzle today and I absolutely loved it. Took a few hours of messing around with it with breaks in-between to get it apart, and another half hour to put it back together. This is one that I feel would have some replay value as once you put it back together, there is no easy gimmick to remember to get it apart again. You need to solve the two mazes simultaneously to get it apart each time. It's also nice that it can easily fit in your pocket so you can carry it around without something pressing into your leg. My only complaint about this one is one part of the puzzle was a little difficult to rotate, but it got easier to do so the more I did it. This one is great for anyone who enjoys mazes and tactile sliding puzzles.

I just received The Medallion and absolutely love it. I've tried 6 times to take it apart and got so close each time, but I'm still working on it! I know there's a video with the solution, but I'm bound and determined to do this without the video!

A mild to moderate challenge. Very well made and elegantly designed. Medallion is roughly similar in concept to L'oeuf, but much improved. Operation is much smoother and it doesn't have a silly chicken on it.

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.
