Actually.... You really wouldn't need 3 variables, just some fancy math...
If you have 3 currency denominators, the easy way is to just declare the
variable as floating point instead of integer, then base your money system
off decimal places to determine what coins the charater has. For example...

a good system here would be:
1 silver = 100 copper
1 gold = 100 silver 

In the case above,  by grabbing the decimal place value of the floating point
variable, the character would have 23 copper, 50 silver, and 1 gold piece.
