Canada Issues Glow-In-The-Dark Coins

Canada is rolling out new glow-in-the  dark coins to celebrate the country's 150th birthday.  The Royal  Canadian Mint says a two-dollar "toonie" that features a view of the  blue-green aurora borealis is the first to go into circulation.  The  coins use a special ink to illuminate the northern lights above two  canoeists paddling along a remote lake.  Other luminescent coins depict  similar scenes of Canada's natural wonders.  There's also a collectors'  coin featuring Canada's red and white maple leaf flag with exploding fireworks overhead.
