Product Details
Millions of years ago, the Canadian landscape was full of prehistoric species whose remains lie in the rocks that bridge our era with theirs. Each splash-struck coin is truly unique and brings life to the fossilized remains of Gorgosaurus.

Using an old coin-making technique, the coin does not have a rim; instead, the .9999 fine Silver is allowed to “spill” beyond a traditional round shape to give the coin an irregular one, just like an ancient Roman coin

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Coin is encapsulated and is featured inside a ready-to-display floating frame.
  • Also contains a certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: Displays a right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year and face value.
  • Reverse: Depicts the fossilized remains of Gorgosaurus, as it was found in the rocks of the Alberta badlands.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.

The reverse design is based on fossils curated at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta, and has been reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists at the Museum. Reproduced on a smaller scale, the articulated skeleton of a juvenile Gorgosaurus libratus fills most of the reverse; it is depicted in a classic death pose, with legs folded beneath the torso and the neck bent back towards the tail, while the jaw is lined with a fearsome set of sharp teeth. The combination of precision engraving and special finishes result in an eye-catching contrast between the smooth, timeworn look of the polished fossils and the rock-like texture of their “sandstone” encasement. The rimless coin’s unusual contour is the result of an old coin-minting technique, which allows the fine Silver to “spill” out and form an irregular shape reminiscent of an ancient Roman coin.

Since the coin’s irregular shape won’t fit within a typical capsule, the RCM has packaged it in a ready-to-display floating frame. Measuring 80 mm x 80 mm x 34 mm, this framed presentation makes for one-of-a-kind wall art and a sure conversation piece. Plus, the coin’s antique finish is sealed in lacquer and has the side benefit of minimizing the appearance of fingerprints, should the coin be removed from its frame.
