73 Million Years After the Flood: Unearthing the Ancient Mystery of Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai
Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai was first discovered in 1972 by a science teacher from Grande Prairie, Alberta named Al Lakusta. In what would prove a significant discovery, Lakusta located the dinosaurs in a rich bed of prehistoric bones at Pipestone Creek, Alberta. The bonebed is perched on the steep wall of a valley carved through bedrock, exposing strata of the Wapiti Formation.When the area was finally excavated in 1986, paleontologists from the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta, were amazed to find an enormous wealth of bones. Some areas of the site averaged 100 bones per square meter.The Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai herd that these researchers ultimately uncovered is a species of ceratopsid (or horned dinosaur) from North America’s Late Cretaceous period. These formidable beasts were up to 8 metres (26 feet) long and weighed up to four tons. The most distinctive feature of this amazing beast is its massive head, which is dominated by large bony structures called “bosses” above the nose and eyes (Pachyrhinosaurus means “thick-nosed lizard”) and a hefty frill of bone on the back of its skull festooned with small horns.While their substantial armour of facial and cranial bone suggests a menacing nature, Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai was actually a herbivore that survived on tough, fibrous plants.Special features: - New series of four coins! This distinctive cupronickel coin is the first in a four-coin series of coloured Prehistoric Creatures coins featuring photo-luminescent elements. - An ideal gift for dinosaur enthusiasts young and old, and a unique addition to any numismatic collection.- Designs approved by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology- Effect like photo-luminescence in a glow-in-the-dark technology. Sunlight is best, for fluorescent and incandescent lights found in most households can also be used to activate the special photo-luminescent ink which makes the bones of the dinosaur glow. For best effect, place the coin in these light sources for 30 – 60 seconds and bring into the dark to reveal the skeleton of the dinosaur.

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 western shores 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. - The photo-luminescent technology (the glow-in-the-dark) is apparent through capsule.Product specifications: - Face Value: 25 cents - Mintage: 30,000 - Composition: Cupronickel - Diameter (mm): 35 - Edge: Plain - Finish: Specimen with colour - Artist: Julius T.

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 superpredator related to present-day snakes and Komodo dragons that was one of the most massive creatures ever to inhabit Earth’s oceans.
This unique coloured coin includes an unusual photo-luminescent feature. Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, with the technical guidance of paleontologists at Alberta’s Royal Tyrell Museum, the reverse side of this painted coin illustrates paleontologists’ rendition of what Tylosaurus pembinensis may have looked like. When the coin is removed from natural light, we see the skeleton upon which paleontologists have based their illustration. Centered within a raised circular frame, the daunting beast slithers across the field of the coin, head and massive jaw in the foreground, front flippers and left hind flipper extended, and massive propellant tail arched in the background. The huge mouth is open to reveal dozens of sharp, powerful teeth. In the glow-in-the-dark image, the monster is transformed into an intricate skeleton with its seemingly endless sinuous spine, complex rib structure, finger-like flipper bones, and bony tail revealed in stunning detail.
