Mongolia is famous for its rich fossil record including dramatic species such as Velociraptor, known from the Jurassic Park movies. Now in its 5th 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 dinosaur and rare collector coin enthusiasts alike.

This year’s release in the Evolution of Life series is the salamander-like Diplocaulus which lived in the perm age around 250 - 300 million years ago. As a water dweller with a size of 0.5 to 1 meter this fossil lived on small fishes and tadpoles. The Diplocaulus probably used its flattened tail and eye-catching boomerang shaped skull to create an uplift from the seabed when a prey was detected.

This prehistoric fossil is again featured on a high relief coin. It is plated in rose gold on an antique finish rock matrix background. All previous releases of this series are sold out and this edition is sure to be no exception...
