This collectible is a treat for dinosaur fans of all ages. But an extra feature only reveals itself in the dark, where glow-in-the-dark technology hints at the special significance of a dinosaur discovery made in Canada.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Julius T. Csotonyi has been reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta. It features a coloured rendering of a young Hypacrosaurus stebingeri, as it may have appeared 75 million years ago. The hatchling emerges from its egg against an engraved prehistoric landscape of evergreens, conifers, shrubs and low plants. The Hypacrosaurus’ uniquely shaped beak is viewed in right side profile as the hatchling looks up; it does not yet have the bony crest that is a distinctive feature of the adult Hypacrosaurus. Glow-in-the-dark technology reveals fossilized remains that are based on those uncovered at Devil’s Coulee in southern Alberta.

The coin’s egg-like shape is the perfect fit for a dinosaur egg theme. This coin highlights the 1987 discovery of one of North America’s largest dinosaur nesting sites.

When activated, glow-in-the-dark technology reveals a hidden image: the skeleton of the young Hypacrosaurus stebingeri. This collectible is a treat for dinosaur fans of all ages.
