As evolution and civilisation progresses, man is often responsible for destroying the natural habitat of our wildlife, forcing many closer to extinction. If more are not to follow in the Dinosaurs footsteps we need to start protecting and preserving our wildlife. This four coin series shows the diversity of creatures that have disappeared from our planet and depict in particular.
Coins in the collection include:
- The Tyrannosaurus Rex was the biggest carnivore ever to live on land. Fossils found in North America suggest that it was about twelve metres long, six metres tall and weighed about 8 tons.
- The Brontosaurus weighed more that six fully grown elephants. This massive creature probably spent most of it’s time eating leaves and plants in order to get enough nutrients for its huge body.
- The Stegosaurus was an amazing nine metres long and two tons in weight with a brain that was only the size of a walnut. Its tail was lined with metre long spikes for defence.
- The Triceratops was a fierce looking horned dinosaur that roamed North America feeding on plants.
