"Les" is a personal pronoun that works here as an indirect-object (dative). It refers here to the coins (monedas).
"donde les corresponde (estar) = where it suits them (to be) = it's appropiate for/to them (to be)"
In this particular example, I think that the pronoun could be omitted "estarán donde corresponde" - it actually sounds a little better to me, the meaning is slightly different (the verb "corresponder" refers more to the situation than to the coins: "where it's appropiate") but in this context it's equivalent.
