Product Details

Mintage of Only 20,000 Coins!
This 1/2 oz .9999-fine Silver $4 coin was designed by Canadian artist Kerri Burnett. The image of a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton accentuates the immense jaws of this formidable prehistoric predator. A selective finish has been applied to the reverse of the coin to give its design an aged, fossil-like appearance. In fact, this technique ensures no two coins are exactly alike. The design was developed in close collaboration with palaeontologists at Alberta’s Royal Tyrell Museum and is an original and compelling keepsake of one of humanity’s great fascinations. The obverse features the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, ceated by artist Susanna Blunt.

The mighty Tyrannosaurus rex measured up to 39 feet from head to tail. It had a gaping 3-foot-long bite with 4- to 6-inch teeth that could rip out hundreds of pounds of flesh at a time. This beast's name means "tyrant lizard," and there is no doubt it rules today as one of the most popular images of prehistoric life.
