Own the Official Megalosaurus 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 and you can own it in The Royal Mint’s official collector pack!
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.
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!
