Hot Topic: The Trade Show Coin

A few trade show regulars have found a new way to make an impression when greeting visitors to their booth. Instead of a business card and throw-away brochure, they offer a real custom coin made specifically for the show, with their contact particulars minted on the reverse. Those coins are kept as souvenirs and definitely do not get thrown away.

The Spy Coin

Silver Dollar Spy CoinIn January 2007, the U.S. Department of Defense issued a warning about a new espionage threat: spy coins. After it was suspected that Canadian coins carried across the border by American contractors may have contained tracking devices, Defense Department officials confirmed that this method of spying posed a legitimate threat to U.S. interests. In fact, in an official report related to the investigation, the CIA revealed that it had previously used hollow U.S. silver dollar coins to carry top-secret messages and film. (Photo courtesy CIA).
