The Royal Canadian Mint's "glow in the dark" prehistoric animal series coins have been some of the most popular and sought after coins issues in the past several years.  Both earlier coins sold out immediately and appreciated in the secondary market. This newest coin features the Tylosaurus Pembinensis. This was a huge water predator of the Late Cretaceous period (about 75 million years ago).

This large format cupronickel coin features a rendition of what the Tylosaurus may have looked like using a photo-luminescent element. The head of this animal and massive jaw can be seen in the foreground of the coin, its mouth open to reveal dozens of sharp, powerful teeth. Removed from natural light, the monster's glow-in-the-dark image is transformed into an intricate skeleton. The reverse is engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013," and the face value of "25 CENTS." This coin design was approved by Alberta's Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.

Millions of years ago, a vast inland sea covered the centre of the North American continent, teeming with strange and fearsome creatures. The Tylosaurus was one of these creatures: a super-predator related to present-day snakes and Komodo dragons that-at a whopping 43 feet in length-is believed to have been one of the most massive creatures to ever inhabit Earth's oceans.
