2022 Australian Dinosaurs – Uncirculated Privy Mark Four Coin Collection
Beautifully designed and privy marked, this four-coin collection encapsulates a slice of Australia’s dinosaur history dating back to the Cretaceous Period – an epic 66 million to 143 million years ago! While the dinosaurs’ names are quite a mouthful, you’re bound to recognise Australia’s largest dinosaur, the Diamantinasaurus matildae, which was a whopping 16 to 20 metres long, or maybe the Kunbarrasaurus ieversi, which was covered in bony armour.
Skeletons of both these species have been found in Queensland, along with the carnivorous and frightening-looking Australovenator wintonensis. Completing the collection is an elaphrosaurine theropod, which was discovered in Victoria and thought to enjoy a plant-based diet.
Each coin gives a nod to the creatures that inhabited Australia long before we did and will no doubt be a catalyst for much discussion as collectors discover more about these magnificent animals.
