Mongolia is famous for its rich fossil record including dramatic species such as Velociraptor (known from the Jurassic Park movies) Now in its 9th year, the Evolution of Life series pays tribute to past eras by portraying extinct prehistoric creatures in luxurious rose-gilded smartminting relief on an antique finish rock matrix background. This beautifully designed and struck, 1 ounce .999 pure silver coin is a stunning collectible for fossil and rare collector coin enthusiasts alike.
The 2023 edition of the unrivalled Evolution of Life series stuns with a remarkable new representative of a distant past. The Nimravidae, a prehistoric feline family including the depicted genus Hoplophoneus, flourished during the Palaeogene. Also known as false sabre-toothed cats, these mammals were fearsome predators. Muscular bodies, razor-sharp claws, and elongated canines led to an impressive arsenal of tools for hunting their prey. These magnificent beasts are thought to have roamed the ancient woodlands and grasslands of North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
The high relief and shimmering rose-gold-plated skeletal elements against the antique finish rock background make this coin a perfect addition to your collection.
