Popular site Gizmodo wrote about this thing, and the article was posted on Quora with the belief for a comment from someone, who can give details on why Apple includes a coin inside MacBooks. One of the former Apple Engineer, Michael Vogel answered the question by saying:
“All of these coins are in slot loading optical drives. People would place their computers into a bag that also had changed in it, the coins would slide into the slot and get wedged in the plastic underneath the drive.”
“As an Apple technician, finding coins inside of a slot loading optical drive is incredibly common because people put coins in their backpacks with their computers. It’s no mystery. Apple isn’t leaving coins inside of their products.”
