Submission + - Bugged Canadian Coins

tundra_man writes: CBC has an article posted about RFID type devices being found in Canadian coins found on US Contractors persons. From the article "Canadian coins containing tiny transmitters have mysteriously turned up in the pockets of at least three American contractors who visited Canada, says a branch of the U.S. Department of Defence". From the article "The report did not indicate what kinds of coins were involved" but I would say that the Canadian two dollar coin known as the "twonie" would be the best fit for the job as it has an inset component which could potentially be swapped for a high tech center.
