Millions of years ago, when the Rocky Mountains had barely begun to form and much of North America's interior lay beneath a great sea, prehistoric Canada was home to an astounding array of dinosaurs.

Some were small and swift, others were ferocious giants—and you can meet three of them with this awe-inspiring series of fine silver coloured coins, starting with Quetzalcoatlus, the terror of the sky!

First coin design, the Terror of the Sky:

Designed by Canadian artist Dino Pulerà, the first coin in your subscription features an intricately engraved rendition of how a Quetzalcoatlus likely appeared, and was reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. The use of selective colour brings this long-gone species to life in incredible detail; soaring with only an occasional flap of its enormous wings, the terrifyingly large reptile keeps one wing bent towards the viewer while the left wing is outstretched. Its long, pointed beak is open wide, releasing a cry into the wind as it prepares to swoop down to find prey. The coin's own silver surface recreates radiant rays of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds above the distant mountains, which convey how high the plane-sized creature would soar above the conifer forest below.

false advertising


It is a huge ripoff that the website claims this subscription has "free shipping" without explaining that the free shipping only applies to the first coin. The shipping cost is ridiculously high for such a tiny coin. But the coin itself is very nice.




Prehistoric is Alive and Well at the Canadian Mint:-)


Can you believe it!! The Prehistoric Age from 65 Million years ago is now roaming the Hallways of the Royal Canadian Mint. Couldn't ask for a better subscription to get. The colors are dead on accurate and I love the relative low mintage of these silver coins. Anyone who loves Colorized Coins should add this set to their own personal collection as I have done. Tell the Engravers JOB WELL DONE on this set of coins.

Great Looking Set...Affordable Too!


I like the design of the coin as well as how short the subscription is being only three coins long. The display case is also a good idea to include with this subscription. Fairly low mintage of 10000 coins as well which should only add value. Look forward to receiving the other coins.

What is the "Collector Case" made of?


The case is a standard clamshell wrapped in black leatherette.

Josh (Product Team)

Given the connection to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, are they available for sale in the gift shop of the Museum?

Museum musing

Hi, Currently, there are no plans to sell these coins in the museum gift shop. But thank you for the suggestions. I'll pass it on to the appropriate department.


Why is the system charging me for 1 coin after I clicked on subscribe?


Hi Nina, We charge for each coin separately as each coin is mailed. The three coins are sent approximately one month apart. So you'd be charged $44.95 when the first coin ships, $44.95 when the second coin ships and $44.95 when the third coin ships.


They subscribe you and take the amount of the coin off automatically everytime the new coin comes out then they charge your credit card for the second coin and so-forth. Remember though you can not subscribe if you are paying with PayPal as it is only with a credit card that you can subscribe.


Will the individual coins come in a maroon clamshell or will they just be packaged in anticipation of the free case that will come later on?


Thank you for your question. As this is a subscription, the coins will be shipped individually in anticipation of the free case.

Does this set come with all the 3 coins at once and what is the total cost of the 3.


Hi Angie, One coin is shipped each month. Total cost for three coins is $134.85 ($44.95 X 3)


Hi Angie, One coin is shipped each month. Total cost for three coins is $134.85 ($44.95 X 3)


are the coins protected in the case or just open to fingerprints and such?


The coins are protected by plastic capsules.


Can you purchase individual coins in this set? If so, how? Thanks.


Hi DP - sorry, but this case is currently only available with this set.


Is this purchase 3 coins, if so do they come at the same time, or are the other 2 delayed

Dave the Dino Guy

Hi Dave, Here's the delivery schedule for the three coins; Coin 1: Terror of the Sky (shipping now) Coin 2: Spiked Lizard (ships in April) Coin 3: Armoured Tank (ships in May)


Can you purchase the case separately if you only want the one coin? Or other display cases available?


Hi Sue - sorry, but this case is currently only available with this set.
