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.
