I could imagine RFID-type tracking of bills. What I can't imagine is
how you'd ever manage to track metal coins in and out of a cash register,
unless the *register* itself has embedded analog signint pre-processing.

If it's worldwide, I can only imagine consistent data if acquired by 
satellite, so it's got to be some frequency that propagates relatively
well, with some sort of passive radar[1] type mechanism?

Or is this why all cell phones have FM receivers now?[2]
