Two new stunning Ancient Canada fossil coins for 2018! Subscribe today!

Imagine an era millions of years ago when our famously northern climate was largely subtropical. An interior sea filled with marine reptiles and molluscs divided our continent—and the Canadian landscape was dominated by dinosaurs of all sizes. This is Ancient Canada!

The remains of the dinosaurs that once roamed our country are embedded in the rocks that bridge our era with theirs. With a prehistoric look and feel, this two-coin series recreates exciting fossil finds that speak of a world very different from our own.

More fun fossil coins that come beautifully packaged in individually ready-to-display floating frames, ideal for work or home! Subscribe today!

Special features:
  • 2-COIN SUBSCRIPTION! Subscribe today* and then relax knowing you will receive both coins (each coin $134.95). Coins in your subscription include:
    • Coin 1: Gorgosaurus (priced at $134.95, expected ship date January 2018)
    • Coin 2: Marrella (priced at $134.95, expected ship date March 2018)
  • MADE LIKE AN ANCIENT ROMAN COIN! Using an old coin-making technique, your coins do not have a rim; instead, the 99.99% pure silver was allowed to spill beyond a traditional round shape to give your coins a slightly irregular shape—just like ancient Roman coins!
  • TRULY UNIQUE! Due to its irregular shape, your coins may be larger and flatter but will always have a minimum diameter of 38mm! Each coin will vary, which makes both of your coins truly unique!
  • ATTENTION TO HISTORICAL ACCURACY! Verified by Alberta's Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, your coins use precision engraving to recreate the fossil remains and the textured appearance of sandstone—much like the rock in which the original fossil was found!
  • ANTIQUE FINISH APPLIED BY HAND! To enhance the detailed engraving of the fossil and its sandstone-like surroundings, a stunning patina finish has been painstakingly applied to your coins by hand. This gives your coins an antiqued appearance that reflects the series' historical theme!
  • NO PLASTIC CAPSULE FOR A VISUALLY TACTILE EXPERIENCE! Since your coin's irregular shape does not fit in a typical plastic capsule, each of your coins is instead packaged individually in a ready-to-display floating frame! Measuring 80 mm x 80 mm x 34 mm, this framed presentation makes for one-of-a-kind wall art and a sure conversation piece—it will seem like the fossil is embedded in your wall!
  • SEALED IN LACQUER! Both of your coin's antique finish is sealed in lacquer, which should minimize the appearance of fingerprints if the coin is accidentally removed from its frame.
  • PREHISTORIC-LOOKING FONT! A fun font with a prehistoric appearance was used on both sides of each of your coins to give an overall aged appearance!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • VERY LOW MINTAGE: Only 5,500 coins will be made available worldwide. Hurry and subscribe today before they are all gone!
  • ONE-OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coins are GST/HST exempt!

About the first coin design:

Your coin design is based on fossils curated at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta, and has been reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists at the Museum. Reproduced on a smaller scale, the articulated skeleton of a juvenile Gorgosaurus libratus fills most of the reverse; it is depicted in a classic death pose, with legs folded beneath the torso and the neck bent back towards the tail, while the jaw is lined with a fearsome set of sharp teeth. The combination of precision engraving and special finishes result in an eye-catching contrast between the smooth, timeworn look of the polished fossils and the rock-like texture of their "sandstone" encasement. The rimless coin's unusual contour is the result of an old coin-minting technique, which allows the fine silver to "spill" out and form an irregular shape reminiscent of an ancient Roman coin. The patina finish and a prehistoric-looking font further add to the coin's antique appearance. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

Each of your coins comes beautifully packaged individually in ready-to-display floating frames, ideal for work or home!
