Dangerous Coins

The United States Department of Defense has issued a warning that Defense contracters in Canada have had coins that contain tiny radio transmitters placed among their pocket change. This is not just normal government paranoia, the DOD says the risk is genuine.
Even with the cold war long over, espionage technology continues to be a strong and lucrative field of research. It is unclear, from the information released, which country or entity is using this technology.

Is that what a Canadian $2 looks like? How cute!

As for the transmitters - I love gadgets, but maybe that's a bit overboard hey?
