Can you make/program your own multi-coin acceptor?

Hey everyone! I need help with this certain project of mine. I bought this coin acceptor and turns out it can only accept a certain type of coin based on it's diameter. The problem is I need a multi-coin acceptor that can accept three types of coin which I will then hook up to a PLC. Tried looking for one over the net (Ebay and other sites) and I couldn't find anything. I also tried looking for some locally (I'm from a 3rd world country) and didn't find anything either. Any type of help will be useful. Thank you in advance!
