2021 Canada $20 Discovering Dinosaurs: Reaper of Death Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

Discovered in 2020, the Thanatotheristes degrootorum is the first new tyrannosaur species discovered in Canada in over 50 years. This “Reaper of Death” was identified due to fossil fragments found in Alberta along the Bow River. Its toothy skull is depicted on the reverse of the Royal Canadian Mint's Discovering Dinosaurs coin, where black rhodium plating highlights a fossil find that shed new light on our prehistoric past.

Designed by Canadian paleoartist Julius Csotonyi, the reverse features the fossilized skull of Thanatotheristes degrootorum, a tyrannosaur species recently discovered within Canadian soil. Beneath the black rhodium plating, the engraved rock texture represents the formation in which the fossil fragments were found. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
