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