Ahh, I'm just a pipette stuffer, but I think I can answer your question very thoroughly.
If you've been drinking, sucking on a copper coin will not affect a breath test in any way. Alcohol doesn't magically get sucked and sequestered into a small copper coin that has no appreciable surface area.
There might be some other kind of structure you could swallow that might have enough surface area and alcohol affinity to make you sober in record time, but trust me when I say that it's not been invented yet.
On Earth, Alcohol evaporates everywhere constantly, and if you've been drinking, it's pouring out of your skin and your breath, and there's little chance of containing it!
When you exhale, modern science can tell pretty exactly you how much you drank, and it can tell you how much alcohol is in your body per unit of blood also! Sucking on mints, cough drops, or divine herbs from Shiva are unlikely to do you much good.
I am experienced on this subject, and I think I can give you good advice: If you've been drinking, don't drive! If you're drunk and theres no such thing as a taxi within your budget where you live, and walking is out of the question, get a hotel room! If you can't afford a hotel room, go sleep in some bushes! It might sound crazy, but honestly, it's your best best these days!
By the way, I think booze is one of the greatest accomplishments of mankind! Still, dont you dare think that sucking on a copper coin will make you legal. I promise you it won't!
