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 superb Silver Proof!
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 from .925 Silver to a pristine Proof finish, the highest standard of finish possible, and brought to life with excellent selective colouring, this is bound to be one of the most sought-after ways to own the new 50p!
Just 7,000 of these 50p coins have been struck with this Coloured Silver Proof specification worldwide.
Just 100 currently available.
Your Coloured Silver Proof Megalosaurus 50p is housed within The Royal Mint’s official printed acrylic block with a charming design making it the perfect display piece, complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Just 7,000 coins have been struck with this specification worldwide and we have managed to source just 100 through our contacts at the Mint. This has already SOLD OUT at the Mint so we don't expect our small stock to be around for long!
For collectors and dinosaur fans, young and old, this brilliant series sheds light on one of Britain’s less well-known scientific triumphs.
