Fossil hunter Mary Anning is responsible for some of the most significant Early Jurassic discoveries. An unsung hero at the time, The Royal Mint has confirmed a BRAND NEW UK 3-Coin 50p series to celebrate her legacy and discoveries.
The FIRST reptile to feature in The Mary Anning Collection is the Temnodontosaurus – a marine predator that grew up to 12 metres and hunted the deep ocean millions of years ago.
Expertly struck from .925 silver to a flawless proof finish, the creature on this 50p has been designed by renowned British palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls and is brought to life with selective colour printing.
SELL-OUT on the cards – 7,000 available worldwide
Importantly, JUST 7,000 single coins have been authorised for release worldwide.
This is surely not enough to meet demand. You see, the Megalosaurus Silver Proof 50p was also issued with the SAME 7,000 edition limit and it completely SOLD OUT at the Mint within days.
The Megalosaurus 50p was also the FIRST coin in the Dinosauria Collection. Coin ‘firsts’ such as this consistently sell-out and are some of the most sought-after issues around.
All signs suggest we will see another sell-out here.
Secure yours for The Royal Mint’s official issue price
If you’re quick, you can secure one for your collection for The Royal Mint’s official issue price of JUST £67.50 (+p&p).
But considering the rapid sell-out history of previous silver proof 50ps you’ll have to take urgent action to avoid disappointment. Tomorrow could be too late.
