Calling all Dinosaur Fans. The third coin in The Royal Mint’s brand new series celebrating the discovery of Dinosaurs is now available to add to your collection.


This amazing coin has an image of a Hylaeosaurus with an enlagrged image of its spines below. At the bottom of the coin is the name Mantell (as is on the Iguanodon coin) and the year 1833. This was the year that Gideon Mantell moved to Brighton but his medical practice suffered. He was almost rendered destitute, but for the town's council who promptly transformed his house into a museum.

This coin has been issued in collaboration with the Natural History Museum so it’s certain to be popular with dinosaur lovers and collectors alike!


Also available - Megalosaurus and Iguanodon
