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!"

Japanese brewery Kirin have come up with a solution to the beer-drinkers summer problem of a warm brew -- a drink which is served with a frozen foam head.

Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft features a frozen foam head which makers claim will act as an insulating lid and keep a drink cold for 30 minutes.

The foam is made by cooling the beer to -5C and then pumping it out Mr Whippy style on top of the glass.
