The US money is controlled by Federal Laws [US Code - Chapter 25: Counterfeiting and forgery], not California Law but as a general proposition there are no prohibition in selling altered money,( i.e., coins that have been included in a jewelry like a watch.) unless you change a one dollar bill into an hundred and try to sell it for 50. l believe, also there are no law anymore on defacing money, that writting on it or painting on if for artful purposes.
