As weird and exciting as the dinosaurs were, its amazing that there lived, alongside these great beasts, and even stranger group of creatures, the Pterosaurs!
Literally 'winged lizards'. the Pterosaurs were among the first animals to evolve the power of flight and counted amongst their unique reptilian developments an elongated fourth finger to control their wings, and hollow bones to reduce weight for flight!
This remarkable silver coin honours this most odd of flying creatures to perfection. Depicting the fossilised skeleton of a Pterosaur, perhaps as found in the famous slate quarries of Asia, each 99.9% silver coin has been selectively - and delicately - plated in 24 carat gold. Struck using Coin Invest Trust's smartminting technique, each ancient animal is packed with detail and glorious high relief.
