You need a commercial license to be able to do this.

You can set it up without the commercial licence file to test everything works. You need a coin mech and a keyboard encoder like an iPAC to send a different keypress for each coin type inserted into the jukebox. I used a C220 back when i did it but what is available to you depends on your region. I wired each coin output from the C220 to a different key on the iPAC then set up E-touch to accept those keys to give the credits.

He will still need a commercial licence to use it correctly but to test the set up the licence isn't required. I always recommend that people get it working first before buying the licence. Without the licence the jukebox will start up with 30 credits and will still let people play songs and run into negative credits.
