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 and now this is continued with The Mary Anning Collection - a three-part 50p collection celebrating the discoveries she made along what is now known as the Jurassic Coast!

Today, you can own the Temnodontosaurus 50p in the Royal Mint’s Official BU Pack!

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.

And what better to kick-start The Royal Mint’s Mary Anning collection than with the Temnodontosaurus - An apex marine predator that hunted the deep ocean millions of years ago.

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.

The Royal Mint’s Official Presentation Pack

Your 50p is housed within its official collector pack full of fascinating insight into Jurassic Britain and how our natural history came to be on the face of the nation’s favourite coin!
