By considering the confinement of the Aharonov-Casher system to a Coulomb-type potential, we show that the energy levels depends on the Aharonov-Casher geometric phase and obtain the persistent spin currents. Besides, we investigate the influence of the Coulomb-type potential on the Landau-Aharonov-Casher system by showing that bound states solutions to the Schrödinger-Pauli equation can be obtained. We show that the Landau-Aharonov-Casher cyclotron frequency is modified and discuss a quantum characterized by the dependence of the angular frequency on the quantum numbers of the system. As a particular case, we calculate the possible values of the angular frequency associated with the ground state.
