This is the third release in the Prehistoric Beasts series. The 2020 release features the Plesiosaur which is the first marine animal featured in the series. The Plesiosaur lived during the Triassic and Jurassic period starting about 200 million years ago and spanned a period of nearly 140 million years before they became extinct about 66 million years ago.
With its streamlined body, strong flippers, and rows of sharp teeth paired with one of the strongest jaws of the era, they were the perfect sea predators. The Plesiosaur is featured on this large 65 mm 3 oz silver colorized proof with CIT’s now classic “rock matrix” background. The fossil is shown in very high detail against a blue background made to simulate the rock these fossils were found in.
The mintage of this year’s edition is much lower than the previous issues and is set at only 499 for the world.
