Spy Coins Exposed!

You Americans sure are a suspicious bunch!

The surprise explanation behind the U.S. government's sensational but false warnings about mysterious Canadian spy coins is the harmless poppy quarter, the world's first colourized coin.

They were so unfamiliar to suspicious U.S. army contractors travelling in Canada that they filed confidential espionage accounts about them.

The worried contractors described the coins as "anomalous" and "filled with something man-made that looked like nano-technology," said once-classified U.S. government reports and e-mails.

The 25-cent piece features the red image of a poppy inlaid over a maple leaf. The quarter is identical to coins described as suspicious by the contractors.

The supposed nano-technology actually was a conventional protective coating the Royal Canadian Mint applied to prevent the colour from rubbing off. The mint produced nearly 30 million such quarters in 2004 to commemorate Canada's 117,000 war dead.

"It did not appear to be electronic (analog) in nature or have a power source," wrote one U.S. contractor, who discovered the coin in the cup holder of a rental car. "Under high-power microscope, it appeared to be complex, consisting of several layers of clear but different material, with a wire-like mesh suspended on top."

The accounts led to a sensational warning from the U.S. Defence Security Service, an agency of the Defence Department.

The security service said mysterious coins with radio frequency transmitters were found planted on U.S. contractors with classified security clearances on at least three occasions between October 2005 and January 2006 as the contractors travelled through Canada.


One contractor believed someone had placed two of the quarters in an outer coat pocket after the contractor had emptied the pocket hours earlier. "Coat pockets were empty that morning and I was keeping all of my coins in a plastic bag in my inner coat pocket," the contractor wrote.

Meanwhile, in Canada, senior intelligence officials expressed annoyance with the U.S. spy-coin warnings as they tried to learn more about the oddball claims.

Intelligence and technology experts were flabbergasted by the warning when it was first publicized this year. The warning suggested such transmitters could be used surreptitiously to track the movements of people carrying the coins.

H. Keith Melton, a leading intelligence historian said "I thought the whole thing was preposterous, to think you could tag an individual with a coin and think they wouldn't give it away or spend it."
