Poke Coins: do you get Coins for all days defending Gym OR only for the day Defending Pokemon returned???

If you defend a Gym for 2 1/2 days and your Defending Pokemon is returned to you on the 3rd day::
1- Do you only get the maximum 50 Coins for the day your Pokemon was returned (3rd day)? Which means the two prior days receive (when 'stuck' in the Gym) only earned hours while defending that Gym for those two prior days BUT NO Coins for those two prior days. ???
OR
2- Does Niantic total the number of hours earned for the 2 1/2 days and give 50 Coins for each day?? ( 1 Coin per 10 minutes and the maximum Coins per day 50 Coins (8.2 hours)).

Niantic stated Coins are only rewarded on the day a Defending Pokemon is returned to the Trainer. Do you only receive Coins earned for the day your Pokemon is returned? Are only the Coins (minutes/hours) earned on the day returned counted and not the prior day's earned hours/Coins???
Hopefully someone has the correct answer.

You get max 50 coins a day. You can stick a pokemon on Sunday in a gym and get it back on Monday, after spending 8+ hours in the gym. You get 50 coins.
You can stick a pokemon on Friday in a gym and get it back on Monday, you still get 50 coins.

Thanks...
So that means the days prior to the day your Defending Pokemon was returned will not receive Coins for those prior days.
I wonder why some Trainers want to control a Gym for days when they don't get any Coins for prior Defending days??

It's like... you only get 50 coins for 8 hours spent, no matter the day you put your poke in the gym. Anything past 8 hours is not rewarded with more coins.

The ones who hog the gyms are probably trying to get the golden gym badge or something. There's a badge for hogging gyms now.

This is also why I believe the so-called penalty for pokemon over CP 3000 (faster loss of motivation) is actually a benefit.

Since you can't control when a Pokemon gets kicked out, if you want coins every day it helps to control multiple gyms with 8+ hours per Poke. I was away and barely played this weekend, but since I had Pokemon in 5 gyms I got coins both yesterday and today. But it's all luck - sometimes you get all your Pokes returned same day, sometimes they get spread out.

Living in a big city allows you to get many gyms in a few hours and you don't have to worry about collecting on the next few days. Today and yesterday i collected rewards from gyms i was defending since friday. I'm in around 10 gyms now, and i don't have to worry about monday or tuesday, but i will try to enter in gyms anyway because its fun
