An ideal gift for someone who loves dinosaurs! Order today!

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!

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.


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