2020 UK 50p Dinosaurs - Megalosaurus Colour Silver Proof
Perfect for every big kid in the coin collector world - and every young kid too! - The Royal Mint's Dinosauria series is brilliant, as one might expect from one of the world's leading coin producers.
The first coin in this three-part collection features the Megalosaurus, the first dinosaur ever named and described and, indeed, the first ever meat eating dino ever scientifically recorded!
Created in conjunction with the British Natural History Museum in London, each of these Megalosaurus 50p silver proof coins features the latest understanding of how this ancient carnivore appeared, along with a FULL COLOUR depiction of that first jawbone that allowed William Buckland to name the animal, and Richard Owen to name the overarching species, Dinosauria.
Mintage just 7,000 - a tiny figure for the huge UK coin collector world, and sold out at The Royal Mint!
