Coins

I have a question regarding the word "coin" as a noun. I've always known it as countable, as in e.g. I have three coins. However, recently I've seen it used as an uncoutable noun, pretty much the same way "money" would be used. E.g. If I should pay this much coin, it's not worth it. I did some research, but I couldn't find a definitive answer, so I wanted to ask if this usage is correct, and if so, how often it is used. Thanks!
