Just like certain nocturnal species, the animals featured on the 12 extraordinary coins in our new Colourful Creatures series become active at night − by glowing in the dark. The series has special appeal for children, who can enjoy the coins long after they have gone to bed, but we believe the series is going to prove popular with animal lovers and coin collectors of all ages.

The Austrian Mint’s master engravers have taken their world-famous craftsmanship and attention to detail to another level with this series by combining the coins’ surface relief, colour application and superb artwork to dramatic effect. Even the coins' face value is out of the ordinary: Colourful Creatures is the first ever Austrian 3 euro coin series. With a maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces, the 12 glow-in-the-dark coloured coins will be issued every three months over the next three years.
