We mentioned some time back that Canada is ridding itself of pennies, in our estimation a thoroughly sensible decision.
Not content with just actually saving money, the advertising geniuses at our northern neighbors’s mint came up with a way to sell their quarter for $29.95.
See what you do is replace M. Hahn’s iconic caribou (while of course retaining Queen Elizabeth II’s redoubtable visage on the obverse) with a dinosaur. Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai, to be exact. 1 Then you have the whole coin glow-in-the-dark. You limit the run to 25,000 per individual dino 2 and the next thing you know, et voilà: you’re $3 million to the good.
Fuckin’ cannucks are brilliant, eh?
