The third coin in the Austrian Mint series Prehistoric Life: Back from the Dead series, Cretaceous illustrates the geologic period when all the Earth’s continents were joined together in one vast landmass known as Pangaea. Struck in Proof quality only to a maximum mintage of 50,000, the coin comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and protective slipcase and has an asw of .5209.
Spanning some 80 million years, the Cretaceous period ended 66 million years ago when an asteroid collided with Earth. The period’s high sea levels meant that large portions of the landmass were under water, but on dry land dinosaurs such as struthiosaurius austriacus thrived. Protected by body armour, this small yet fearsome creature is brought to life on the third coin in our fascinating Prehistoric Life: Back from the Dead series
