Own the Official Hylaeosaurus 50p in The Royal Mint’s official collector pack
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 the series in The Royal Mint’s official collector pack!
Brand-new UK 50p coin series
The third and final instalment of 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 50p coins dedicated to creatures that Owen discovered to be closely related, 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 to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your Hylaeosaurus 50p is free from the blemishes of circulating coins.
The Royal Mint’s Official Presentation Pack
