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.

Comments about 2013 Canadian Glow in the Dark Prehistoric Creature - Tylosaurus:
I bought this because the series looks like something the kids would find interesting. The coin glows in the dark as advertised. The design isn't very attractive to look at, and the "skeleton" that glows is simply the light colored part of the design. My kids agreed it glows and then wanted to look at something else.
