Radiopacity of Hollow Coins
The images below were taken of solid coins side by side with
Hollow Spy-Coins. Each of the Spy-Coins (Micro Half, Micro
Euro, and Micro Nickel) were fitted with the Micro SD Memory
Card. As seen from the scans, the US half dollar coin was the
most radiolucent of the three, followed by the US nickel, bottom.
The .50 Euro coin, center, is the most opaque, being the thicker
coin of the three.
