Built like a tank, armed with two massive spikes protruding from its brow, a third horn on its snout, and an armoured frill protecting its neck, the Triceratops is a perennial favourite amongst youngsters first discovering the ancient dinosaurs that roamed the world. Of course, it remains a favourite for those of us who refuse to grow up, and refuse to give up on the dinosaurs. They were awesome, awe-inspiring, and amazing. Just like this coin...!
Struck on a fusion of 145 grams of copper and an outer shell of 99.9% pure silver, the Triceratops here is suitably huge - it measures 60mm! That's twice the diameter of an Aussie 50c piece! And his ancient blighter faces front, horns up and ready to charge!
