COIN INFORMATION

This second issue in the Natura-Series ‘Palaeontology – Rise of the Dinosaurs’ by the South African Mint is dedicated to the Coelophysis Rhodesiensis. In recognition of South Africa?s significance to the field of palaeontology and the study of plant and animal fossils, in 2019 the South African Mint has struck the first Natura silver coin. Archosaurs lived in Southern Africa over 200 million years ago and are regarded as the direct ancestors of the dinosaurs. The rise of the archosaurs and their evolution is a significant event in the history of life on land, since they not only led to the evolution of dinosaurs and birds, but also to the pterosaurs (flying reptiles) and crocodiles. The motive of this coin depicts the Coelophysis Rhodesiensis and the inscriptions “Rise of the Dinosaurs”, “Archosauria”, “South Africa” and “2020”. The limited silver bullion coin is delivered in the original blistercard of the South African Mint.

2020’s addition to the Silver Natura “Rise of the Dinosaur” series features a pair of Coelophysis dinosaurs stalking their prey. The instantly iconic Jurassic Park-like skeletal image of an Archosauria dinosaur returns as the obverse design. Struck in a Troy ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, the coin is sure to be a smash with collectors, dinosaur enthusiasts and silver stackers alike. Plus, each coin in this offer comes in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition as fresh and crisp as the day it left the mint!

The Coelophysis was a bi-pedal predator that could grow to be nearly 10 feet long and stand about three feet high at its hips. Light, fast and grouped together in packs, these dangerous-looking critters lived between 216-196 million years ago in what is today South Africa during the late Triassic to early Jurassic periods. Coelophysis means “hollow form” and this comes from the fact that this little beastie had hollow limb bones, which would account for its relatively low weight (topping out at 45 pounds) despite its long length –further evidence, some paleontologists claim, that dinosaurs were the ancestors of today’s birds.

Each 2020 South Africa One-Ounce Silver Natura Coelophysis Dinosaur Coin comes beautifully displayed in its original government packaging consisting of an informative story booklet and a Certificate of Authenticity. Only 15,000 will be struck so the time to get yours is now before our limited supply become extinct!

  1. Peter

    If you are a fan of dinosaurs you will love this coin. It is miles better than the first one and I thought the first one was good. In one word ‘Quality’. It is brilliantly designed and thought out. I especially like it when you take the coin out of the plastic holder there are bones underneath on the card. I hope the next one is as good. Lower mintage of 15,000 so will be sought after. As usual delivered fast and well packaged. Cheers to Martin.

    Lovely coin & packaging – a “premium” bullion coin!
    Nice to find somewhere you don’t have to buy 10+ coins to get a decent discount / price.
    Fast order processing & dispatch – got my coins the next day.
