Glow-In-The-Dark Dino Coins!

Glowing Dinosaurs!!

Glowing dinos!!

It seems the Royal Canadian Mint has outdone itself once again.  The Canadian Mint has gone above and beyond to incorporate the never-before-seen into their coins to keep the hobby fresh and exciting for new generations of coin collectors, and I for one couldn’t be happier as it seems this process has lead us inexorably to one of the coolest things ever: glow in the dark dino coins!!

The Prehistoric Animals 25-cent coin series launched in 2012, debuting the world’s first ever photo-luminescent coin — and sold out almost immediately. The two coins released for 2013 also sold out in the blink of an eye, so while I will have to settle for hoping to catch a glimpse of one at a coin show for now, my inner nerd is all fired up!

I don’t know how I was kept in the dark (haha) about this until now, but what a great idea that’s executed beautifully!
