Own the FIRST 50p in the Official UK Dinosauria Collection – the mighty Megalosaurus!
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 and you can own it in an exclusive Capsule Edition presentation!
Brand-new UK 50p coin series
Kick-starting The Royal Mint’s ‘Dinosauria’ collection is the Megalosaurus. 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 Megalosaurus is the first of three creatures that Owen discovered to be closely related and will be followed by the Hylaeosaurus and the Iguanodon in the spring!
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 to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your Megalosaurus 50p is free from the blemishes of circulating coins.
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 less well-known scientific triumphs.
