i know. you can get one of these optical switches (in picture) to sense beam break caused by the coin slotted into the machine.The optical switch consists an IR LED and a phototransistor. The circuit will break if any object passes it.

Hope this helps.

Try this product from Sparkfun, Coin Acceptor. Maybe can ask Cytron to selling this product to.
For money note, I don't found any product yet.

I agree with Shahrul. Maybe cytron can sell coin acceptor first because it cheaper than money note reader.
