Canadian Mint releases iPhone-shaped coin with glow-in-the-dark UFO
strangely enough I am listening to Richard and Tracey Dolan and I stumble across this article...

"HALIFAX — The Royal Canadian Mint has issued a glow-in-the-dark coin that captures the eerie scene more than 50 years ago when awestruck witnesses reporting seeing what was officially documented as a UFO crash off southwestern Nova Scotia.
The colourful image on the rectangular-shaped coin shows three fishermen aboard a boat, staring and gesturing as the ghostly image of a flying saucer appears to plunge into the dark waters near Shag Harbour.
But something special happens when the included black-light flashlight is used to illuminate the coin in the dark: the spaceship disappears, but four orange lights remain in the sky, as described by those who reported seeing something that moonless night on Oct. 4, 1967."

"The pure silver collectors coins went on sale Tuesday for $129.95 each. By the end of the day, the mint's website said 95 per cent had been sold."

$130 for a one ounce bar with a cartoon on one side doesn't sound like such a good deal.
People won't buy regular silver (which is cheap right now) but they'll drop an arm and a leg on a collector pos.
This is right up there with a Richard Nixon commemorative plate.

Coins are government tender. An ASE for example has a $1 value stamped on it, a Maple Leaf has $5. Decorative rounds are not coins, but this isn't even a round.
This isn't a coin or a round. It's a bar.
Dang, get it right.

Yeah, it's like they both don't know what they're talking about. Idiocracy is almost here.
