The Scutellosaurus dinosaur coin is produced with one troy-ounce of fine silver which is 99.99% pure. The image depicts an estimation of the dinosaur that was verified for scientific accuracy by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. The dinosaur’s long tail circles the specification 20 DOLLARS, and the name SCUTELLOSAURUS is stylishly etched in caveman fashion into the rock that supports the creature. 2014 and CANADA flank the embossed image.
The obverse side of the coin is graced with the classic profiled image of Queen Elizabeth. The image is flanked with the words ELIZABETH II and D. G. REGINA.
Scientists believe the Scutellosaurus migrated from Arizona to Nova Scotia where its teeth were found, since all continents were connected at that time. Considering the fact that scientists estimate this dinosaur to have only been about a meter in height, the owner of those teeth made quite a remarkable trek!
