You need:

To identify each type of coin, weight, magnetic, size?

You need a slide to pass each coin past a sensor separately - Light sensor? Micro switch?

You need to keep a record and total of each coin and the total of all coins - Microprocessor, Arduino? Raspberry pi?, Picaxe etc?

After that it is about mechanics and programming and that may be a long learning curve.
