Canada Releasing Second Glow-In-The-Dark Dino Coin

February 6, 2013


Note: Larger version of the coin HERE.

In wonderful news for a humpday, the Canadian Mint is releasing the second in its series of 'Prehistoric Creature' glow in the dark dinosaur coins, this time with the Quetzalcoatlus. For the record, the Quetzalcoatlus wasn't actually a dinosaur, is was an ancient flying reptile belonging to the order Pterosauria (the most famous of which was, of course, the Pterodactyl). But who cares, dinosaur or not I would still ride that sucker into battle. Hell, I'd ride one into the mall and straight into Claire's Boutique, I don't care. I just want to ride one. The $30 coins are limited to a series of 30,000 and you can only buy three per household, which is a shame because I had every intention of buying a whole roll and jamming them up my keister for a rainy day. "You have a weird way of spending rainy days." Don't judge me.

Thanks to T8RO, grant, Feeple, I Know GW Loves Dinos (I really do is the thing -- I heart them!), Alexandra and tom, who all promised to get me one for my next birthday which is great because I was really brainstorming how I could get my hands on more than three without paying double on eBay.

    Ride into the mall and take a shotgun to the face from David Duchovny.

    Wow - I thought that with all the delays and problems with the first one, that they weren't going to bother making any others in the line. Awesome that they are making another go at it! Hopefully it doesn't take so long to get this one.

    Riding flying dinos in a mall? Sounds like a scene from that awesome movie "Evolution"
