Pricy and Doesn't Glow Much

1

Purchased this coin at a local Mint outlet inside Canada Post office. It's nice looking, but for the price there are better options. I tried the glow in the dark feature by leaving it under a bright lamp for around 12 hours, it barely managed to glow. The 2017 circulation strike toonie had a much brighter glow than this coin. For the price too, I would expect it to come in a nicer clamshell style case like the Maple series. Disappointed with this purchase.

The coin glows orange-yellow instead of red color. The packaging doesn't glow in the dark at all (On the web page of the product in special features: EVEN YOUR PACKAGING GLOWS IN THE DARK). RCM should provide the real pictures of the products but not computer generated images from development process.

Hello; I purchased this and I cannot get it to glow. Please advise as to what the secret to making it glow may be. Many thanks, Ian

Ian

Hello Ian and thank you for asking. The coin needs to be put in front of a light source, such as a flashlight, to activate the glow-in-the-dark feature.

Chantal

What needs to be doen in order for the coin to glow?

Ian

Hello Ian and thank you for asking. You must put the coin close to a light source for 5 minutes or so. This should be repeated every time you want to see the coin glow.
