I recently looked up a similar question myself and I can across a way to make your own counterfeit money pen (if it goes one colour it's real, the other other colour it is fake type thing).
What you need:
An invisible ink pen (you can get a highlighter and rinse it out so there is not colour left in the reservoir or in the nib)
A syringe (can be obtained ...
It would perhaps be wise to purchase a scanner if you are in a high risk industry like a bar or a club. This will at least let your cashiers quickly check notes reasonably well in the variable lighting conditions.
Otherwise I do not believe there is a hack to your question. A study of the Secret Services "Know your money" website is your best path to ...

You do have 4 pockets, and there are 4 common American coins: pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. You could designate one pocket for each type of coin.
Alternately, you could make it a point of ONLY keeping one denomination of coin: only pennies, or only nickels, or only dimes, or only quarters. The others you could leave at the cash register or nearby.
You can have a wallet custom fit on eBay or etsy, just message the seller, such as this one:
I had him make it so that 3 cards would be too tight to use comfortably. Another thing to keep in mind is the indentations on some cards make them tighter than others. Without squeezing it takes about 25 pounds of force to pull a non indented card out of my wallet, ...
Go to 7-11 and buy something that costs more. Give them cash for the difference.
You will need to figure out exactly how much is left on the card. So if it's 1.87 and you buy something that is 2.00 . you give the clerk 13 cents and tell him you want to put the rest on your card. Problem solved.
Also, if you have more than $5, you can get cash back ...

Coloured aluminium foils
If you need to carry few coins, you can use different colour aluminium foils for different coins. Wrap your coins in the aluminium coils depending upon their value. You can choose your favorite colour and wrap coins which you use mostly in this.

This is a problem for which I have found no good answers. Without buying extra products here is what you can do:
Take small bags(plastic bags called Sandwich bags are quite good) and sort the coins by type into the bags. Now tie the bags tightly and put them into a coin purse. You can even put stickers on the bags indicating the amount in the bag.
For a geeky look, try a coin holder, such as the Custom Accessories 91116 model I saw on Ace Hardware and Amazon sites, about US$4.
The trouble with coins in pockets is that they can wind up in the wash or dryer, damaging the machines and tearing holes in the pocket (I've shorted out more than one dryer heating element).
Alternatively, leave the coins as ...
