Own a NEW 50p in the Official UK Mary Anning Collection – the terrifying Temnodontosaurus!

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 new Temnodontosaurus 50p in an Exclusive Capsule Edition presentation!

Brand-new 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.

Exclusive presentation

Struck to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your 50p is hand-mounted within an exclusive collector card and encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve its premium condition for years to come.

What’s more, your Capsule Edition comes complete with a FREE display stand, ready to showcase with pride in your home or office.

For collectors and dinosaur fans, young and old, this brilliant series sheds light on one of Britain’s most successful palaeontologists who until now received very little recognition for shaping our understanding of the past!

Don’t miss out on your chance to own yours in an exclusive capsule edition. Add yours to your cart today!
