Love dinosaurs? Know someone who does? Then we have the perfect gift for you! Order today!

Imagine seeing a spiky Edmontonia longiceps moving towards you. Or, watching Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis charge headlong at a rival. Or, coming face-to-face with a hungry Albertosaurus sarcophagus. Our Dinosaurs of Canada set is your gateway to a Late Cretaceous Canada, home to prehistoric wonders of all shapes and sizes! Tucked inside an exhibit-ready pop-up folder, these special-themed coins feature three different dinosaurs that were discovered in Canada—the proof is in their names!

OUT OF THE PRESENT AND INTO THE PAST! Introducing a fun set of special-themed 25-cent coins that celebrate Canada’s prehistoric past. The three coins are only available as part of this set.

A FUN JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY! Each design is a surprise encounter with a dinosaur in its natural habitat. It’s a fascinating look at what Late Cretaceous Canada looked like c. 72-68 million years ago.

3D pop-up folder! Your coins are packaged in a brightly coloured 3D pop-up folder that pulls you into this prehistoric world.

A CANADIAN CONNECTION! All three dinosaurs were discovered in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, in the fossil-rich province of Alberta, Canada. They are among the many dinosaurs named for Canada or a Canadian location.

FOR DINO LOVERS AND COLLECTORS OF ALL AGES! The Dinosaurs of Canada coins are a fun adventure for dinosaur fans of all ages! These coins represent an expedition back in time, a modern celebration of our natural heritage, and a possible introduction to a lifelong hobby.

Did you know…

  • Albertosaurus sarcophagus
    This is the dinosaur that put Canada on the palaeontology map in 1884—it was the first meat-eating dinosaur discovered here.
  • Pachyrhinosaurus Canadensis
    A member of the Ceratopsidae (horned dinosaur) family, Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis lived 72.2 to 71.2 million years ago. Its genus name may give the impression it is related to the modern-day rhinoceros, but that’s not the case: it just means “thick-nosed lizard.” And given the evidence of broken ribs in some specimens, it seems likely that this herbivore would head-butt its rivals!
  • Edmontonia longiceps
    This nodosaurid lived 71.5 to 71 million years ago and was named for the Edmonton Formation, now known as the Horseshoe Canyon Formation. 

Designs:

Albertosaurus sarcophagus
The reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a three-quarter view of Albertosaurus sarcophagus (72-68 Ma). Rushing towards the viewer, the tyrannosaurid is open-mouthed to allow a view of its sharp, serrated teeth. The engraved carnivore is bursting out of a prehistoric forest dominated by Metasequoia conifers and Osmunda-type ferns. Engraved along the rim are the words “CANADA”, the face value “25 CENTS”, the species name “ALBERTOSAURUS SARCOPHAGUS” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis
The reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a three-quarter view of Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis (72.2-71.2 Ma). Seemingly charging headlong at the viewer, the ceratopsid is shown with its head lowered to place emphasis on its frill and nasal boss. To the left of the engraved herbivore is a lake setting, where the sunset is reflected on the water. Engraved along the rim are the words “CANADA”, the face value “25 CENTS”, the species name “PACHYRHINOSAURUS CANADENSIS” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Edmontonia longiceps
The reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a three-quarter view of Edmontonia longiceps (71.5-71 Ma). The nodosaurid is shown lumbering towards the viewer with its natural armour of spikes and bony plates prominently displayed. At its feet, Erlingdorfia leaves litter the wet ground. Engraved along the rim are the words “CANADA”, the face value “25 CENTS”, the species name “EDMONTONIA LONGICEPS” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

This was purchased for my twin grandsons, who totally love anything dinosaur. So I figured why buy another toy to add to the collection, buy them something with value, could be a start to an interesting hobby, and a the same time captivate their interest with the dinosaurs they love!
