This expression has been very common since 1930, in United States among people who used to challenge each other with this expression. The word “mouth” refers to talk and “money” represents action. So it means to support your words with your action. Today the expression means to bet or give your money to assure that you really believe in what you say. This expression has also put on a ruder or harsh form that is “put up or shut up”.
