The coins turn to dust in your inventory...

Coin stacks
  • One coin is needed to start the Demon Slayer quest.
  • The maximum number of coins that can be collected in one stack (bank or inventory) is 2,147,483,647. When this number is reached, the amount of coins in the stack resets.[Clarify] This limit is often referred to as "max cash".
  • Before the update on 26 November 2001, coins and other objects stacked up to 65,535[1].
  • While it says the coins turn to dust when grabbed or when players use Telekinetic grab the coins on the ground do not disappear.
