I can see how it might have been a little confusing ...

A few months ago, some stories surfaced about Canadian "spy coins" finding their way into the pockets of US Army contractors travelling through Canada.

As it turns out, the "suspicious" coins were specially minted Poppy coins, issued in 2004 to commemorate Canada's war dead.

We really shouldn't be too hard on these hapless contractors. How could they possibly wrap their heads around the completely foreign concept of acknowledging a country's fallen soldiers?
