Horrible sound track. I muted it and whistled the Little Rascals theme music while I watched.
Thanks for posting!
Couldn't tell, but they do not appear to be US coins. Appear to have a continuous wreath around a two or three line inscription. Almost like the rev of a Canadian large cent.
You have a good eye. It made me track down the video on YouTube and saw this in the comments (can't vouch for its accuracy)

This film is actually from 1920. The full length version shows dies for a 1920 Canadian large cent, the last year large cents were made in Canada.
I was actually thinking Canadian large Cent, but I also thought that the film was US, so I was definitely not sure of anything
I do wonder if it really dates to 1907. For some reason it seems a little later than that to me, but I didn't see any dates and the film never displayed a closeup of the coins.
Then I looked at the comments on YouTube and someone posted this: "This film is actually from 1920. The full length version shows dies for a 1920 Canadian large cent, the last year large cents were made in Canada."
So Canadian Large Cent was a fabulous guess! I also want to see "the full length version" now, too. And 1920 seems like a more accurate date.
Edit: Here it is, with better music:
A nice closeup of the dies occurs at 5:41.
I was able to watch on my TV. On a nice big screen.
1920 Canada Large Cent is the dies being made.
Props to @Conder101
