Sound strange? In a series of several new currency alterations, Canada has decided to remove their penny from circulation while also implementing a new glow in the dark quarter with a dinosaur on it! While this sounds like a completely random move, it actually has some significance.
Canada decided to mint this coin with a dinosaur on it because the Pachyrhinosaurus lacustai, which is the creature depicted, was the first dinosaur found in the Alberta region, which led to the discovery of a plethora of other dinosaur remains. To make the coin even more alluring scientists added a new design that is infused with a photo-luminescent element that allows the dinosaur’s skeleton to glow in the dark!
If you plan on acquiring one of these coins we suggest you do it quickly because only 25,000 will be minted and will cost around 30 dollars each!
