Prehistoric Creatures: Tiktaalik - 25-Cent Coloured Glow-in-the-Dark Coin (2014)

In 2004, researchers working in Nunavut uncovered the fossilized remains of a mysterious prehistoric creature to bridge the evolutionary gap between water and land.

Tiktaalik lived roughly 375 million years ago. It had the gills, scales and fins of a fish, but the head of an amphibian: flat with both eyes on top, and spiracles that suggest the presence of rudimentary lungs.

What's more, Tiktaalik had extra-thick ribs, another adaptation for animals that don't float in water and need extra support against gravity while on land. It also had wrist and finger-like bone structures inside its fins—precursors to actual limbs.

Experts believe Tiktaalik used these limb-fins to push itself out of the shallow, fast-flowing water where it lived and crossed short distances on land. It's a captivating, puzzle-packed creature that will fuel the imagination of dino-detectives young and old alike!

Special features:

  • This distinctive cupronickel coin is the fourth in our series of coloured Prehistoric Creatures coins featuring photo-luminescent (glow-in-the-dark technologies) elements.
  • For best effect, place the coin in sunlight, fluorescent, or incandescent light for 30-60 seconds, then bring the coin into the dark to reveal the glowing skeleton of the dinosaur!
  • Photo-luminescent effect will not wear.
  • Limited to 30,000 coins worldwide.

Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, and illustrates paleontologists' rendition of what Tiktaalik probably looked like.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with glow-in-the-dark sleeve.
