Dinosaur Coins

coin_parasaurolophus.jpgThe Royal Canadian Mint has released a commemorative $4 coin featuring a parasaurolophus, a Late Cretaceous dinosaur found in Alberta:

This is the first of a four-coin “Giants of Prehistory” series, with a triceratops coin scheduled for 2008, a T. rex scheduled for 2009, and a dromeasaur in 2010.

The mint has produced 20,000 of the parasaurolophus coins for sale to collectors, with a price of $39.95 each (Canadian dollars).

Grace and Peace
