This $20 fine silver coin is the perfect shape for a colourful depiction of a baby Hypacrosaurus breaking free from its egg against an engraved forest backdrop. Mintage is limited to just 4,000 coins.  HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

It features a coloured rendering of a young Hadrasaur as it may have appeared 75 million years ago. There is something thrilling and miraculous about watching any egg hatch, but watching a dinosaur come to life from a 75 million year old egg takes the magic to a new level.  Under normal light, watch the baby dinosaur emerging from its egg.  Turn out the lights and see the fossilized skeleton set against the egg shape of the coin.  

The hatchling emerges from its egg against an engraved prehistoric landscape of evergreens, conifers, shrubs and low plants. The Hadrosaur pictured is a Hypacrosaurus.  Its uniquely shaped beak is viewed in right side profile as the hatchling looks up; it does not yet have the bony crest that is a distinctive feature of the adult Hypacrosaurus. Glow-in-the-dark technology reveals fossilized remains that are based on those uncovered at Devil’s Coulee in southern Alberta.
