Searching the Black Ven cliff near her home in Lyme Regis, Mary Anning made a series of remarkable finds. The fossil reptiles she uncovered helped scientists identify and understand mighty creatures that once ruled the seas and skies, but as a working-class woman she was denied academic acclaim.
The Mary Anning Collection, a three-part collection celebrating the discoveries she made along what is now known as the Jurassic Coast, continues with a new coin featuring Plesiosaurus, a long-necked predator that was discovered in 1823 and terrorised ancient oceans. Available as a gold Proof, silver Proof, colour silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated edition, it shines the spotlight on an unsung hero who was one of Britain’s greatest fossil hunters. Each coin in the collection was designed
by renowned British palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls with the expert guidance of Sandra Chapman of the Earth Sciences Department of the Natural History Museum, London. Robert specialises in creating accurate reconstructions of natural history specimens for museums and universities around the world.
