Thank You

Yes, the output score is the observed values of the variables in the principal coordinate axes.
I wrote a detailed answer to this question that is a tutorial on how to use MATLAB's pca() function. You might find it helpful.

You want to use score, not score*coeff.
score is equivalent to X*coeff; it's the original observations transformed to the PC coordinates.
