Canadian “spy” coins

Awesome. Is Canada secretly stealing the world’s secrets? Spy coin report overblown, U.S. official says
A report that that some Canadian coins have been compromised by secretly embedded spy transmitters is overblown, according to a U.S. official familiar with the case.
â..There is no story there,â. the official, who asked not to be named, told The Globe and Mail.
He said that while some odd-looking Canadian coins briefly triggered suspicions in the United States, he said that the fears proved groundless: â..We have no evidence to indicate anything connected with these coins poses a risk or danger.â.
A report from a Pentagon agency made headlines this week after it stated â.. unequivocally â.. that Canadian coins found in the possession of U.S. defence contractors had been tampered with.
