Today the world is a little awsomer than it was yesterday. Why? Because the Royal Canadian Mint has been taken over by twelve year olds.
On April 16th (just 4 days!), the mint will release a new quarter design:
But wait. It gets better.
How is that even possible?!?!?
It’s a (insert choice of expletive exclamation here) glow-in-the-dark dinosaur skeleton coin!!! That’s right all you other countries, Canada now has photo-luminescent currency.
The only way it could be more like the margins of my grade six math notebook is if it were fighting a series of jet-pack robot pirate dimes.
The design is the first of 4 in a new Prehistoric Creatures collection and only 25000 will be minted. You can purchase them (at a super inflation rate) for $30 from Canada Post outlets or the mint website.
