This is a coin that is sure to please dinosaur enthusiasts across the board! This is the fourth in a series of coloured Prehistoric Creatures cupronickel coins. This coin has a seriously fun element-exposure to sunlight for 30-60 seconds activates glow-in-the-dark technology, which reveals the skeleton of the dinosaur once it's brought back into the dark. This creature, the Tiktaalik roseae, is featured here because of the exciting new insights its discovery has given palaeontologists regarding the planet's early water-based vertebrates and the tetrapods that came to dominate the land. Its striking green colour against a specimen-finish makes this piece a pleasure to look at; gift this to any young (or old!) dinosaur-lover and watch their face light up with joy.
