Why purchase this perfectly graded 2018 Gorgosaurus Antiqued Silver coin?

The third release of the Royal Canadian Mint's Ancient Canada series commemorates the lizard-like Gorgosaurus of the Late Cretaceous Period (75.5-77 million years ago). The coin is splash-struck, a method that replicates the minting technique employed by the ancient Romans. Each unique coin in the 5,500 mintage was allowed to randomly spill beyond a traditional round shape. The rimless 2018 Gorgosaurus coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, measuring a minimum of 38 mm in diameter.

Fossil Design with a Dramatic Antique Finish

A Gorgosaurus skeleton is featured on the reverse, portrayed in the "death pose" as discovered in the Alberta Dinosaur Provincial Park in 1991: its jaw opened, legs folded, with head and neck bent back above the spine. Inscribed "CANADA" and "GORGOSAURUS."

The profile image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as designed by artist Susanna Blunt adorns the obverse, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "2018," "D. G. REGINA" and "20 DOLLARS."
