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 Marrella.

Nicknamed the “lace crab,” Marrella splendens and its curving spines have left an unmistakable imprint on rocks, and on this splash-struck coin. The latest addition to the Ancient Canada series, the Cambrian arthropod is the most abundant species found in Canada’s fossil-rich Burgess Shale, where hundreds of thousands of diverse specimens provide a window to ancient life.

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 Marrella, 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. It features a near life-sized reproduction of Marrella splendens, a marine arthropod from the Middle Cambrian period (505 million years ago), whose curving spines and wedge-shaped head are among its most distinguishing features. A carefully sculpted rock texture fills the field and surrounds the precision-engraved fossils, resulting in a more true-to-life rendering of the Marrella specimen recovered from the Burgess Shale Formation. While the rimless coin’s unique shape is the product of an old coin-making technique, the antiqued look of a patina finish adds to the design’s “ancient” look and feel, which extends to the prehistoric-looking font on the reverse and obverse.

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.
