With a heavily armoured body, Edmontonia was well equipped to protect itself if attacked. This stout herbivore was one of the last armoured dinosaurs of the late Cretaceous period. Only its underside was left unprotected, as large ridged bony plates covered its body and neck while smaller plates shielded its hips and tail. Most fearsome of all were its large shoulder spikes; Edmontonia could aggressively defend itself using these spear-like features to impale its enemy, which made it appear all the more intimidating—even to a hungry tyrannosaurus!

  • A scientifically accurate depiction of a formidable herbivore in the sub-tropical environment of its era, in what is present-day Alberta!
  • A unique way to learn more about the species whose fossils connect us with a distant past, and the way Canada's landscape has evolved over millions of years.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER!
  • VERIFIED BY PALAEONTOLOGISTS! This depiction of Edmontonia has been verified by paleontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, your coin features a highly detailed depiction of Edmontonia, and was reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Viewed in three-quarter profile, this colourful herbivore lumbers across the prehistoric landscape on its four powerful legs. Its pear-shaped head is closest to the viewer; but its rounded outline stands in contrast to the imposing appearance of the spike-covered armour, which protects its neck, back and tail. The lush vegetation that dominated Alberta's landscape during the Late Cretaceous period fills the background around Edmontonia, and all are beautifully rendered through finely detailed engraving.

Packaging:

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

      coins are very nice I think with the free case, free shipping and the low cost of the coins you cant go wrong. my only issue is it is a little difficult to see the 10 in the 10 dollar value because they put to much detail with trees and grass and whatever.

        Being a fan of dinosaurs I really loved this series. Three coins is certainly a reasonable subscription when 5 coins seem to be the average subscription. All of the coins for this series were well done, lots of detail but not to much that it distracts the viewer from the dinosaur. Nice that the mint included a case for these three coins as together they present really well.
