It's a penny.
A lucky penny is used to calibrate Curiosity’s camera system, and Curiosity is also said to be carrying cash.
The article says the following on the third and final page:
Why not just call it a "favorable probability penny"?

Engineers at the space agency have admitted that they used special coded tyre tracks on the rover. They use morse code to spell out JPL (Jet Propulsion Lab), the lab where the rover was put together.

I made a thread about that law ... and its got so many loopholes [pointed out by ATS members] that it is useless.
Did Nasa STEAL luna rocks from the moon? (by OmegaLogos posted on 24-10-2011 @ 08:12 PM) [ATS]
Personal Disclosure: For example ...
States Parties to the Treaty undertake not to place in orbit around the Earth any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction, install such weapons on celestial bodies, or station such weapons in outer space in any other manner.
The Moon and other celestial bodies shall be used by all States Parties to the Treaty exclusively for peaceful purposes. The establishment of military bases, installations and fortifications, the testing of any type of weapons and the conduct of military maneuvers on celestial bodies shall be forbidden. The use of military personnel for scientific research or for any other peaceful purposes shall not be prohibited. The use of any equipment or facility necessary for peaceful exploration of the Moon and other celestial bodies shall also not be prohibited.
And yet Curiosity is up on Mars firing its LAZERS! Dual use means they should never of been used in the 1st place or we enter that loophole zone of BS!
