The massive and powerful “king tyrant lizard,” Tyrannosaurus rex, seems ready to pounce in this exceptionally life-like depiction. Fortunately, this finely crafted coin keeps T. rex safely trapped in 99.99% pure silver. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a Tyrannosaurus rex running toward the viewer. Its head and body aimed straight ahead, the T. rex turns its head slightly to the right side of the coin face, opening its mouth wide to reveal deadly teeth. Its right eye focuses squarely on its target. The image provides a unique vantage point that still showcases the characteristic horizontal gait of the two-legged predator. In the background, its tail swings to the left of the image and its small right forelimb rises slightly from its body. The ground is dotted with the ferns that grew in its native habitat.
