2021 15.5g Great Britain The Mary Anning Collection - Dimorphodon .9167 Gold Proof Coin
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 is a three-part collection celebrating the discoveries she made along what is now known as the Jurassic Coast.
The final coin features Dimorphodon, a winged reptile that was discovered in 1828 and filled coastal skies millions of years ago. 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.
