2018 Canada $20 Ancient Canada - Gorgosaurus Fine Silver (TAX Exempt)

A faster relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, the carnivorous Gorgosaurus is well represented among the tyrannosaurid fossils of Alberta's Dinosaur Provincial Park. Our Ancient Canada series of antiqued, splash-struck coins continues its exploration of Canada's prehistoric past with an illustrated rendering of the most complete Gorgosaurus skeleton ever recovered.

Specifications:
Item Number: 163382
Composition: 99.99% pure Silver
Mintage: 5,500
Weight: 31.39 g
Diameter: Approx. 38 mm
Face Value: $20
Finish: Antique
Edge: Plain

Special Features:
- BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Two more coins have been added to our wildly popular Ancient Canada series, which had collectors clamouring for more!
- EACH ONE IS UNIQUE: Struck using an old coin-minting technique, each coin may vary in size: it may be larger or flatter, but it will always have a minimum diameter of 38 mm!
- Your coin does NOT have a rim: instead, the 99.99% pure silver was allowed to "spill" out to give this coin a slightly irregular shape - just like an ancient Roman coin!
- Verified by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, the design features precision engraving that realistically mimics the timeworn look and feel of fossils embedded in sandstone.
- Adding to the engraved textural details, a beautiful patina finish gives the coin an antiqued appearance that reflects the series' theme, while the prehistoric-looking font adds to the "lost in time" feel of it all!
- The antique finish is sealed in lacquer, which should minimize the appearance of fingerprints if the coin is accidentally removed from its frame.

Packaging:
Floating frame with black beauty box
