65 million years on from their extinction, our fascination with dinosaurs, our most awe-inspiring pre-historic ancestors, is as strong as ever.
The world of dinosaurs has been explored extensively through science, books and film but now, for the first time ever, a British perspective on Earth’s most intriguing dwellers has been told on the face of an official UK 50p coin series and you can own the final 50p in superb Silver Proof!
UK 50p coin series
Concluding The Royal Mint’s ‘Dinosauria’ collection is the Hylaeosaurus. The series is dedicated to British anatomist Richard Owen’s findings on the commonalities of fossilised creatures uncovered in the nineteenth-century – the so called ‘Dinosauria’. The Hylaeosaurus is the last of three creatures that Owen discovered to be closely related to be celebrated on an official 2020 50p, following the Megalosaurus and the Iguanodon, issued earlier this year.
The coin has been officially licensed by The Natural History Museum and designed by Robert Nicholls who specialises in creating accurate reconstructions of natural history specimens.
Struck from .925 Silver to a pristine Proof finish, the highest standard of finish possible, and with a tiny worldwide mintage of just 3,000 – this is bound to be the collector favourite!
Just 30 currently available!
Your Silver Proof Hylaeosaurus 50p is housed within The Royal Mint’s official deluxe presentation case, complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
