While the range of a coin transmitter is small, it is capable of storing microfilm or a coded message. These can be retrieved by pressing a spot on the coin face to open the coin.
The size of a pinhead and devised by Chinese scientists from the latest nanotechnology, the coins are described by a spokeswoman for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service as "pure James Bond. We have just learned about this and we are working closely with MI5 and the Pentagon to track the transmitters and to alert contractors working in ultra-sensitive military areas to check their coins".
