Coin collectors will be ecstatic to own the Royal Canadian Mint 2012 Dinosaur quarters. These quarters not only have detailed pictures of dinosaurs on them but also glow in the dark to show their skeletons.

The quarters are the part of a four-coin Prehistoric Creature collection and come in a limited quantity. Avid coin collectors will be rearing to get these into their growing collections for you don't always get a chance to travel to the past -- especially prehistoric times. They come in elegant brown boxes that are packaged and most of the quarter is taken up by the dinosaur design and reads "CANADA 25 CENTS 2012" along its edge. One doesn't have to go too far to find fossils as these dinosaur prints will be embedded onto our money.
