    For $33, I'm curious about the profit in these, given manufacturing and handling costs. They'd have to be hollowed out on a lathe or milling machine, right? I wonder if a large quantity were sent overseas to be tooled.

    I would think they would feel light and anyone that handled them would notice something odd? Unless the rim is filled with a little lead to give it the weight of a normal coin.

    If you can now point me in the direction of where to get the microchip I might be interested in one. :D

    the nickel looks pretty cool, as a low value coin it would not get the attention of a ASE, now if they could put a tracking device in it that would be a pretty sweet way for police to track stolen coin albums, just stick it in a blank spot in your nickle album, theif grabs all your goodies and gets busted by a nickel leading the cops right to the location of your albums.

    Walmart has those chips along with the converter plug to put them into your computer or phone so you can access them. I've got 3 or 4 floating around my desk right now.

    lol it's not a micro chip it's Micro SC cards. They fit in camera's and stuff.
    I'll get looking for a microchip though ;)
