SO COOL! A hatching dinosaur coin that glows in the dark! Order today!

There are few places in the world where dinosaur embryos have been discovered, but Canada is one of them. In 1987, eggshells found at Devil’s Coulee, in southern Alberta, led to the discovery of one of the largest dinosaur nesting sites in North America. There, palaeontologists from the Royal Tyrrell Museum unearthed the fossilized remains of Hypacrosaurus stebingeri nests, eggs, even embryos—a rare find for a species that roamed the land 75 million years ago. A young duckbill dinosaur emerges into a new world—ours—on our latest prehistoric-themed offering. The fine silver coin is the perfect shape for a colourful depiction of a baby Hypacrosaurus breaking free from its egg against an engraved forest backdrop.

A glow-in-the-dark dinosaur coin, perfect for fans of all ages! Order today!

Design:

Designed by Julius T. Csotonyi, your coin 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.

Did you know…
  • A Hypacrosaurus hatchling measured about a metre long. But by the age of 10, its full adult size was 10 metres long. They had to outgrow predators such as tyrannosaurids and dromaeosaurs in order to survive.
  • Hypacrosaurus may have returned to the same area over time to nest, where it would deposit about 26 eggs in a single nest. Each egg was approximately 20 centimetres in diameter, or roughly the size of a volleyball!
  • Similar to the nests of modern crocodiles, Hypacrosaurus eggs would have been buried under a mound of vegetation for incubation. Decomposition of the plant matter would have produced the heat required to incubate the eggs, since parents were too large to sit on the eggs like modern birds do.
  • The adult Hypacrosaurus had a hollow crest on top of its head. This bony feature was connected to its airways to amplify its call, so others could hear it from far away.
  • These plant-eaters had thousands of teeth, with new ones replacing older ones as they wore down.
  • The Hypacrosaurus belongs to the hadrosaur family, dubbed the “duck-billed dinosaurs,” which were one of the most common dinosaurs to roam North America during the Late Cretaceous period.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

Hello Red and thank you for asking. The coin was a very popular offering from the Mint, and sold-out very quickly. The RCM operates under a first come, first served basis, which represents the most equitable manner of distribution for our products. Regrettably, due to popular demand, not all of our customers were able to obtain this coin.

Are the images pictures of actual coins?

Hello Dan and thank you for asking. They are graphic representations based on the final artwork designs and the intended finishes.

Does the price include both coins? I want the glow in the dark AND the regular coin, $139.95 for two coins is an amazing deal.

Hello and thank you for asking. The 1 oz. Pure Silver Glow-in-the-Dark Coin - Hatching Hadrosaur - Mintage: 4,000 (2019) is only one coin. But when it glows it features the skeleton of the dinosaur. So, yes both in one coin.
