Oh, Canada

I have long envied Canadians for their money. It's so stylish and colorful! The reverses of their banknotes aren't boring old buildings! (The US two-dollar bill also lacks a building, but those are harder for me to get than Canadian coins.)

Then, the Royal Canadian Mint went nuts and started making colorful coins, including a (non-circulating) series based on Canadian cryptids:


That's a Sasquatch quarter, folks. A quarter with Sasquatch on it.

But THEN. THEN, they decide that wasn't enough.


That's a dinosaur. A Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai. I'm not sure what that is, but it's awesome.

Also, its skeleton glows in the dark.

Buy your own glow-in-the-dark dinosaur quarter through the Royal Canadian Mint for $29.95 CAD.
