Australovenator:

Australovenator fossils were discovered in what was once an ancient billabong near Winton, central Queensland by the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum, with museum staff nick-naming the dinosaur “Banjo,” after the famous Australian poet, Andrew Barton “Banjo,” Paterson. The scientific name Australovenator wintonensis is derived from the Latin words austral meaning from the south, venator meaning hunter, and wintonensis meaning from Winton.

The Australovenator has been described as a medium-sized (6-m long), very fast, carnivorous dinosaur. This animal had massive arms and hands with two of its three hand claws being razor sharp weapons that would have been used to capture prey.

Diamantinasaurus:

Official, eye-catching and extremely exclusive, the second coin in the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Series is a dramatic exploration of Australia’s prehistoric past—and a collector coin of the utmost quality.

The sauropod Diamantinasaurus roamed the Australian landscape approximately 100 million years ago. Fascinatingly, this truly Aussie dinosaur’s species name is D. matildae, after the first was found in an ancient billabong not far from where Banjo Paterson penned Waltzing Matilda.

Measuring around 16 metres and weighing about 20 tons, the breathtaking size of this huge prehistoric reptile has been captured perfectly upon the 40.60 mm frame of this Australian legal tender release.

Leaellynasaura:

A dramatic exploration of Australia’s prehistoric past, and a collector coin of the utmost quality, this official Australian legal tender release pays homage to Leaellynasaura—a small plant-eating ornithopod dinosaur that roamed the Australian landscape more than 100 million years ago.

Crafted from a troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver, the fully struck-up depiction of Leaellynasaura contrasts beautifully with the starlit prehistoric scene.

Minmi:

This silver proof coin is the fourth release in the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Series and celebrates the small but mighty Minmi—an armoured herbivore that roamed the Australian landscape some 113 to 119 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period.

Crafted to the height of Proof quality from a troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver, this official Australian legal tender release carries a sharply sculpted portrayal of Minmi upon its crown-sized 40.60 mm diameter flan.

Muttaburrasaurus:

Muttaburrasaurus is the final coin in this exciting five-coin series featuring Australian dinosaurs that existed in the Cretaceous Period between 112 and 102 million years ago.

Muttaburrasaurus was a large herbivorous ornithopod dinosaur that would have measured up to seven metres in length and although predominantly bipedal, the creature was also capable of walking on all four legs. It had an unusual skull with a large, bulbous, hollow chambered snout that is believed to have amplified the volume of its call.
