1. Container for packaging and unwinding a coil of wire, comprising:

  • a box shaped body for accommodating a wire coil, said box shaped body having a polygonal plan cross-section and an openable top end for allowing insertion of the wire coil; and

    a coil covering panel having a central circular opening and a contour with angular portions, said contour matching the inner plan shape of said body, said panel being freely descendable in said box shaped body in contact with said coil as height thereof decreases following unwinding of wire from an upper end of the coil through the central opening of the panel, said angular portions of the panel preventing lifting of wire turns between a peripheral region of the panel and an inner surface of said box shaped body and thus accidental entanglement of the wire turns.
