This $10 pure silver coin features the largest creature ever known to fly, the Quetzalcoatlus.  During the late Cretaceous period 68 to 66 million years ago, this massive winged dinosaur soared over what is now North America with a wingspan of about 10 to 11 meters (33 to 36 feet).

The Design:

The design shows the dinosaur in flight with one wing bent and one outstretched.  Its long beak is open as if in the middle of a cry, as it prepares to find its prey.  Rays of sunlight can be seen as they peek through the clouds above the mountain in the distance.  The scientific accuracy of this depiction has been verified by paleontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology.

The reverse is engraved with the words "CANADA," the date "2016" and the face value of "10 DOLLARS".  It weighs just over one half ounce of 99.99% fine silver and has a diameter of 34 mm. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.
