Mintage of only 30,000 coins!
Third Coin in the Prehistoric Creature Series! Previous coins have sold out at the mint. Millions of years ago, a vast inland sea covered the centre of the North American continent, teeming with strange and fearsome beasts. The king of these wonders was the mosasaur Tylosaurus-a super predator related to present-day snakes and Komodo dragons. 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 this prehistoric creature. Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded maroon clamshell case lined with black flock and protected by a customized coloured sleeve with glow-in-the-dark elements.
Please note - this twenty five cent coin from Canada is made of cupronickel and contains no amount of silver.
