This intimidating creature was as tall as a giraffe with the wingspan of a small plane—the largest known animal to ever take to the sky! Quetzalcoatlus lived during the late Cretaceous period more than 66 million years ago and had seemingly unbreakable bones: a partial skeleton unearthed in Alberta in 1995 showed evidence of a scavenging Saurornitholestes that broke a tooth on one of Quetzalcoatlus' wings!

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Dino Pulera, your coin 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.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

  • Q:

    I noticed there was going to 10,000 coins for subscription and noticed there are to be 10,000 individual coins. Is the mint producing 20 000 or 10 000 of these coins?
