Quetzalcoatlus Glow In The Dark Dinosaur - 2013 Canada 25 Cents Sold Out At Mint For Sale

Quetzalcoatlus Glow In The Dark Dinosaur - 2013 Canada 25 Cents Sold Out At Mint

2013 - CANADA
Prehistoric Creature
25-Cent Coloured Glow-in-the-dark Coin!!! SOLD OUT AT THE MINT !!!

More than 66 million years ago, a shallow inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway covered the
centre of the North American continent, stretching from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. The Eastern
and westernshores of this sea were lined with plains that gave way to hilly highlands in the East and the volcanic
beginnings of the Rocky Mountains in the West. Across much of the ancient shoreline soared one of the
largest animals ever to take to the air: Quetzalcoatlus. This pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous period was a large,
lightweight reptile with a long, stiff neck, a sharp bill, and a wingspan of up to 10 metres (33 feet).

The Quetzalcoatlus dinosaur coin is the second in a 4-coin
Prehistoric Creature glow-in-the-dark (photo-luminescent) series!

Special features:
•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!
•Turn off the lights and discover the Quetzalcoatlus's glowing skeleton!
•Photo-luminescent effect will not wear!
•Limited to 30,000 coins worldwide.
•Designs approved by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.

Design:
Your coin was designed by artist Julius Csotonyi, and this stunning painted coin illustrates palaeontologists'
rendition of what Quetzalcoatlus probably looked like—and when the coin is removed from natural light,
the prehistoric creature's skeleton is revealed. The scientific accuracy of the depiction was
verified by palaeontologists of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.

Packaging:
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.

Lord of the skies: Quetzalcoatlus—North America's largest pterosaur.

Diameter(mm): 35
Country of origin: Canada
Face value: 25 Cents
Mintage: 30,000
Year: Artists:
