2017 $20 Ancient Canada - Ornithomimus Fine Silver (No Tax)

Millions of years ago, the Canadian landscape was teeming with prehistoric species whose remains lie in the rocks that bridge our era with theirs. This is Ancient Canada! Through unique striking techniques and an antique finish, this splash-struck coin takes a closer look at life before us through its depiction of the fossilized remains of Ornithomimus, as it was found in rocks of the Alberta badlands.

Special Features:
- HISTORY PRESERVED - AND IN THE MAKING! AN RCM FIRST: SPLASH STRUCK LIKE AN ANCIENT COIN! Using an old coin-making technique, the coin does not have a rim; instead, the 99.99% pure silver is allowed to "spill" beyond a traditional round shape to give the coin an irregular one - just like an ancient Roman coin!
- A MINIMUM DIAMETER OF 38MM: Due to its irregular shape, your coin may be larger and flatter. Each coin will vary, which makes your coin TRULY unique!
- OUTSTANDING DETAIL AND ATTENTION TO HISTORICAL ACCURACY! Verified by Alberta's Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, your coin uses precision engraving to recreate the fossil remains AND the textured appearance of sandstone - much like the rock in which the original fossil was found!
- ANTIQUE FINISH GIVES IT AN AGED LOOK! To enhance the detailed engraving of the fossil and its sandstone-like surroundings, a stunning patina finish has been painstakingly applied to your coin by hand. This gives the coin an antiqued appearance that reflects the series' historical theme!

Floating frame with black beauty box.
