2020 Iguanodon Dinosauria Fifty Pence Coloured Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

UK20IBUC 2020 Iguanodon Dinosauria Fifty Pence Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder Packaging
from
£16.00
In 2020, The Royal Mint in conjunction with the Natural History Museum released a set of three Fifty Pence coins to chart the history of dinosaur discoveries and advances in palaeontology, in a series dubbed the 'Dinosauria Collection'. This coloured BU 50p edition shows the iguanodon, which was originally called the 'iguana-saurus'. The iguanodon was a large, herbivorous dinosaur which was able to walk on its two hind legs or all four of its limbs. It was named by the famous geologist Gideon Mantell in 1825, whose work in early palaeontology meant he became an authority on prehistoric reptiles. On the reverse side of the UK 50p, the palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls creates an impression of what the creature would have looked like millions of years ago when it roamed the earth. In front of the image is an example of one of its teeth as well as the legend 'IGUANODON' and 'MANTELL 1825'. On the obverse side is Jody Clark's effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, which is the fifth official portrait used on circulating UK coinage. Each coin is struck twice during production to give a brilliant uncirculated finish, set off with vibrant colour printed detail. Specifications are a weight of 8.00 grams and a diameter of 27.30 millimetres. Included is a coin slipcase, full of information about Gideon Mantell and the iguanodon dinosaur.
