Shouldn't Noah and his sons be riding that Pachyrhinosaurus? Not very historical... :P

8O As someone who likes dinosaurs, glow in the dark things, money, while hating pennies, well this settles it. I officially love Canada. Also, Pachyrhinosaurus has long been one of my favorite ceratopsians.

Vigilans, you silly. Everyone knows Noah rode a Chasmosaurus.

Oh wait, the palaeontologists are saying there's no such thing. Gaa! Faith crisis!

Go Canada!

Whatev'. I'm not interested in collecting coins, just spending 'em. :)
And there should be a CAVEMAN riding on that dinosaur. That would be more historically accurate than Noah or Jesus. :lol:

I'd put Thor, or Zeus. With an Aztec design in the background.

Why can't the US do something cool like glow in the dark dinosaur quarters?

I wonder if I find one of those places you swap US money for foreign money...if I could get some. Those are so freaky, they are cool!

Maybe ebay has 'em

Oh my God that's awesome!!

I love it. Canada always have the best coins. I remember seeing one with a Parasaurolophus on it once. :cheers:
