The Mary Anning Collection Of Coins

#25 The Mary Anning Collection Of Coins

What’s better than celebrating one of Britain’s ultimate fossil hunters than celebrating it with a unique coin collection?

The Royal Mint released the limited edition 50 pence Mary Anning Collection in early 2021.

It is a brilliant way to celebrate one of the most fantastic fossil hunters underappreciated during her time in the 19th century.

You can get your hands on the three-coin collection, which has Temnodontosaurus, Plesiosaurus, and Dirmorphodon, all of which were discovered by Mary Anning.

The Mary Anning Collection is designed by the prominent paleoartist, Robert Nicholls who made an accurate illustration of these creatures.

The coins are beautifully and accurately prepared, along with the prehistoric flora and fauna.
