Description

This 2013 $20 coin brings you back about 260 million years ago to when the Bathygnathus borealis roamed the earth. It has been scientifically verified by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Limited mintage of 8,500. HST/GST exempt.

 

The Design;

Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, your coin displays a depiction of the Bathygnathus borealis, scientifically verified by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Depicted here as similar to Dimetrodon, the mammal-like reptile bares its long, sharp teeth as its powerful, low-slung body walks. From the animal's back rises one of the key Dimetrodon features: the tall, spiny, skin-covered dorsal sail used to regulate body temperature. The reverse is engraved with the words "CANADA," the date "2013" and the face value of "20 DOLLARS."
