When it comes to the discovery of Dinosaurs, there is no fossil hunter quite as extraordinary as Mary Anning. An unsung hero at the time, her Early Jurassic reptile discoveries along the Jurassic Coast have helped scientists identify and understand mighty creatures that once ruled the seas and skies.
Now, The Royal Mint has just released of a BRAND NEW UK 50p series celebrating three of her greatest discoveries.
The SECOND reptile to feature in The Mary Anning Collection is the Plesiosaurus – a marine reptile as large as 4.5 metres with fins that it used to swim through the water.
The creature on this 50p has been designed by renowned British palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls, with expert guidance by the Earth Sciences Department of the Natural History Museum.
Struck by The Royal Mint to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish – a higher standard to the coins you find in your change – your coin will arrive in its official themed presentation pack, designed by The Royal Mint.
What’s more, you can order yours today for The Royal Mint’s official issue price of £10 (+p&p).
