Remember Those Bugged Canadian Quarters. Please Forget Them.

Remember the Poppy Quarters that came out for Remembrance Day back in 2005 (I've still got one somewhere, 2 international moves later) and had a small poppy painted on them, hence the name. It was a special edition quarter of limited circulation, and available Well, FOX News remembers the hysteria and gives the rundown.
Even the Americans have to admit that this was just a case of what my Dad calls, "Good, old fashioned Yankee overkill."
Oh, and the mysterious 'nanotechnology' present on the coins? Plastic coating to keep the poppy from rubbing off.
