You could always use a JY-142 board.

You should be able to find one for around 20 odd quid. 
It basicly counts the pulses from the notey, and converts x amount of pulses to x amount of coins.

I built this a few weeks ago.

I posted a bit of info on DIF at the time. I also added an arduino Leonardo board to this, so that I can convert notes to keyboard presses in MFME.

What you've made looks really good.  It's interesting to know you've MFME that accepts real coins, does it pay out real coins as well?

If it is a pulse note acceptor then yes (ICT type, or may be switchable from cc talk to pulse). Just connect the pulse to the board and share the same ground. The hopper power connects to the on board relay, and the opto connects to the signal imput.

Nowhere near unfortunately.
All you have to be able to do, is connect wires together. Work slowly and follow instructions.
