Always great to see a coin depicting prehistoric life and we’ve had some great ones over the last half decade or so. An attractive issue to debut this year was the New Zealand Mint’s ‘Dinosaurs’ range, which launched back in February. This one featured the Tyrannosaurus Rex and was followed by the Triceratops a couple of months later. This third issue takes to the skies with the strange Pterodactyl. These flying reptiles existed from the late Triassic to the end of the Cretaceous (228-66 MYA) and these formidable beasts ranged in size from the tiny, to huge animals with wingspans in excess of 11 metres!
We liked the first two coins and we like this one. The colour over antique finish look works well and has done so in the past on othe NZM series. The mint has a knack of combining this look with some cool subjects, like famous battles, for example. A 1oz 0.999 silver coin, it has a 2,000 mintage and some good quality presentation. Available today for around $80.00 USD.
