2013 Canada $20 Fine Silver Coin- Dinosaurs Of Canada: Bathygnathus Borealis:
$86


Theme:The first coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting new series featuring portraits of prehistoric animals discovered in Canada!Description:This fine silver coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 38 millimetres and a metal weight of 31.39 grams. The reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features an interpretation of what Bathygnathus borealis may have looked like. The scientific accuracy of the depiction was verified by palaeontologists of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.Viewed from its front left side, Bathygnathus borealis appears to approach the viewer, displaying the large, powerful, tooth-filled maxilla whose discovery first brought Bathygnathus borealis into the limelight. Depicted here as similar to Dimetrodon, we see the mammal-like reptile’s powerful, low-slung body. Its muscular, claw-tipped front limbs bow slightly to the sides of its squat body, its front left claw raised as it walks forward. Its hind left leg is similarly bowed and its hind right foot is just visible beneath the low belly, raised in unison with the front left limb in a lizard-like walking motion. The animal’s long tail curves behind it, toward the left side of the image. From the animal’s back rises one of the key Dimetrodon features: the tall, spiny, skin-covered dorsal sail used to regulate body temperature. The reverse is engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2013,” and the face value of “20 DOLLARS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.Special Features:A Royal Canadian Mint first!
