The hard part being new to this for me is, not knowing what exists already lol!
I'd like to find information out on my own however I'm looking for help in direction of resources.

Im looking to start a project that involves 50 state quarters. I'm looking to be able to control a servo to be able select any one of them remotely, from there push them from their holder.

Thanks
Jeff Herrick

What sort of a 'holder' and would you need to move more than one at any given time? If you only need one moved at a time, then you could use a gantry type system similar to some vending machines where the servo to push the quarter is mounted on a sled that is moved around on rods/extrusions by cheap stepper motors (a bit like a really cheap cnc router gantry).
