2008 $4 Dinosaur Collection - Triceratops (2nd Coin In Series) - Comes With Coa


2008 $4 DINOSAUR COLLECTION - TRICERATOPS (2ND COIN IN SERIES)

It is a discovery that sends hearts pounding and opens a window to the mystifying world of dinosaurs. Their fossilized bones testify to the massive beasts that once ruled the earth but disappeared suddenly 65 million years ago. During the time of these great beasts, a great inland sea covered much of western Canada and the area now known as Alberta and Saskatchewan was a lush subtropical shore and home to over 35 dinosaur species. As these animals died, the evolving landscape covered their bones with centuries of mud and sand only to be revealed when the glaciers from the last Ice Age scraped away the top layers of rock and exposed bits of fossilized bone.

Discovered by paleontologists in the late 1800's, they inspired generations of dinosaur hunters and established Canada as one of the richest sources of Late Cretaceous fossils on earth. Triceratops was one of 14 horned (ceratopsian) species that flourished throughout Alberta between 65 and 72 million years ago. Triceratops (meaning "three-horned face") is easily identified by the three menacing horns on its face which combine with the large frill over its neck to intimidate wouldbe attackers.

These dinosaurs were solidly built, weighing as much as 6,000 kg (13,200 lb) and measuring up to 9 m (30 ft) long.
