Canada celebrates sesquicentennial with world’s first glow-in-the-dark coin

On July 1, 1867 the British provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Canada (which became the provinces of Ontario and Quebec) united to form the new Dominion of Canada, a process known as Canadian Confederation. During the next 150 years America’s neighbor to the north has given the world maple syrup, ice hockey, Jim Carrey and Justin Beiber. Now, in celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial Royal Canadian Mint has released world’s first glow-in-the-dark coin in circulation.
