2009 T- REX

Coins - World | Longstrider

For your discerning viewing is my new-old specimen of a 2009 Canadian 4 dollar T-Rex. My photos do not do it justice. This is a one ounce silver coin rated at $4 dollars Canadian. Besides the proof-Like finish, the Dinosaur is in an unique aging affect that is unique to each coin. Pretty cool, yes?? The coin is 34 Millimeters in diameter with a metal weight of  15.87 grams of 99.99% silver. It is designed by Kerri Burnett with Her Majesty on the obverse by Susanna Blunt. It has a, I would say, low mintage of 20,000. This particular coin is #13,846. For an kid, no matter how old, I find this a fantastic dinosaur coin. Thank you for looking and commenting on my T-Rex coin!

Love the coin, and for sure that is one terrible lizard. The Queen looks fabulous. The reverse is cool, too. I had heard that T-Rex was reclassified as being an herbivore, and not a carnivore as previously believed. Do you think the image, as it looks to me, is supposed to be a slice of rock with fossilized bones embedded inside? Like you would find along the ocean.

I have started buying and putting away coins with dinosaurs for my grand-daughter. Canada had a nice run of coins that the skeleton would glow in the dark.
