Defense Security Service Report Statement on Canadian Coins Incorrect, 01/12/2007
A statement in the 2006 Defense Security Service Technology Collection Trends in the U.S. Defense Industry report which claimed radio frequency transmitters were discovered embedded in Canadian coins is not true, according to DSS officials.
This statement was based on a report provided to DSS. The allegations, however, were found later to be unsubstantiated following an investigation into the matter.

The Defense Security Service has posted a retraction on their website regarding the 'spy coins'.
WASHINGTON — Reversing itself, the Defense Department says an espionage report it produced that warned about Canadian coins with tiny radio-frequency transmitters was not true.
If there were no transmitters in the first place, how did this whole fiasco actually get started.

If it was just coins, maybe they'd sit in your jar for 4 years, but how about a $20 bill?

US currency and Euro's have RFID!
You can stick a Euro in the microwave the the RFID will pop!
We develop the physical objects centric information system by using micro RFID which can be watermarked into paper. Tracking of any kind of commodities, from their manufacturing to the scrapping, makes it easy to control their quality, security and cost.
