Dinosaur Coins Should Be the Global Standard Currency

Forget debit cards and cryptocurrency. We should all be paying for stuff with dinosaur coins. This one should do the trick just fine. This commemorative dinosaur coin is available from The Westminster Collection, and it has some cool features.

This $1 coin is minted for the Cook Islands, and features Queen Elizabeth II on one side, and a T. Rex on the other side. Because, why not? Each 24-karat gold-plated coin includes a free UV flashlight so you can shine it at the t-rex and see its hidden skeleton. So it is a coin and a toy.

Apparently, the initial run of 9,500 limited edition coins were released in 2014, but there are still some left. You can get your grubby little mitts on one over at the Westminster Collection for £9.99 (~$13 USD).
