Glow-in-the-Dark dinosaur 25 cent coins launched in Canada

275x250.jpg The change in our pocket is suddenly feeling somewhat inadequate after we discovered Canadians not only get coins with dinosaurs on… but dinosaurs which glow in the dark.

The Royal Canadian Mint has created a series of four 25 cent coins featuring dinos, starting with a Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai.

In normal light the coins, approved by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, show how the dinos would have looked in the outside, but once in the dark their glowing skeleton is revealed.

A spokesperson for the Royal Canadian Mint said: "For best effect, place the coin in sunlight, fluorescent, or incandescent light for 30 – 60 seconds then bring the coin into the dark to reveal the skeleton of the dinosaur!"
The only problem we can see is that the 25 cent coins are being sold for $30 each and are limited to 25,000 worldwide.
