Imagine the excitement of unearthing a new prehistoric species…
The follow-up to 2021’s Reaper of Death, the second Discovering Dinosaurs coin from the Royal Canadian Mint places the viewer in the field and at the site of another important fossil find. Black rhodium plating represents the mysteries of prehistoric Canada on the coin’s reverse, where the engraved fossil belongs to
Mercuriceratops gemini—a “new” ceratopsid unveiled in 2014.
Black rhodium plating. Both sides (obverse and reverse) are enhanced with black rhodium. On the reverse, the plated rock texture represents the thrill of discovery: it transports the viewer to Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park, where one of two Mercuriceratops specimens was found.
