Description
 
Roughly 500 million years ago, early arthropods known as trilobites thrived in the ancient seas that covered our planet during the Cambrian Period. Today, their remains are the object of study and fascination especially on the reverse of this splash-struck coin, where an old coin-minting technique and an antique finish set the mood for this exploration of Canada's prehistoric past!

Special Features:
- HISTORY PRESERVED AND IN THE MAKING! This concludes a two-coin series featuring our first splash-struck coins. Using an old technique, the 99.99% pure silver is allowed to spill out and give the coin an irregular shape just like an ancient Roman coin!
- A MINIMUM DIAMETER OF 38MM: Due to its irregular shape, your coin may be larger and flatter.
- OUTSTANDING DETAIL AND ATTENTION TO ACCURACY! Verified by palaeontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology! Precision engraving accurately re-creates the fossil remains AND the textured appearance of their shale encasement just like the real thing!
- ANTIQUE FINISH GIVES IT AN AGED LOOK! A stunning patina finish has been painstakingly applied to your coin by hand for an antiqued look that reflects the series historical theme!

Floating frame with black beauty box.
