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

Nicknamed the lace crab, Marrella splendens and its curving spines have left an unmistakable imprint on our rocks - and on this splash-struck coin! The latest addition to the Ancient Canada series, the Cambrian arthropod is the most abundant species found in Canada's fossil-rich Burgess Shale, where hundreds of thousands of diverse specimens provide us with a window to ancient life.

Composition: 99.99% pure silver
Mintage: 5,500

Face Value: $20
Finish: Antique

Special Features:
- BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! The second of TWO new coins 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
