When I was a kid I loved the decoder rings that were in cereal boxes. I loved to check out books on spy games from the library. I longed for someone to leave me coded messages taped under a park bench, or a rolled up super-secret message stuck into a crack of a brick wall around the corner from my house. Of course, given the fact that I was an only child and the spy agencies of the world weren’t interested in me, I had no one to play these spy games with. But my love of spy games never went away.
With spy coins, hollowed out coins that you can put things inside, I just might start playing again. During the Cold War, hollowed out coins might contain poison, for self-inflicting or to inflict on someone else. Maybe they would contain some sort of mini map to a hiding spot, or a piece of a secret code. Coins are common, so it doesn’t seem odd if someone has a pocketful of coins.
Spy coins like these by CCS Spy Gear are machined from actual coins. They look and feel just like real coins, and the naked eye can’t tell the difference. An opening device is required to open the coins, so the coins don’t accidentally open. Without the opening device, CSC Spy Gear’s description says the coins are next to impossible to open. Put in your mini SD card with that stuff you don’t want anyone else to see, and no one will know it’s there. Just don’t accidentally spend it!
The hollow quarter spy coin is only $23. Yeah, I’m going to have to start playing again.
