UK 50p coin series
One of Britain’s greatest fossil hunters, Mary Anning, made a series of remarkable finds. The fossil reptiles she uncovered helped scientists identify and understand mighty creatures that once ruled the seas and skies, but as a working-class woman she was denied academic acclaim.
The three-part Mary Anning Collection now continues with a coin featuring Plesiosaurus, a long-necked predator that was discovered in 1823 and terrorised ancient oceans.
Each coin in the collection was designed by renowned British palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls with the expert guidance of Sandra Chapman of the Natural History Museum, London.
