A coin 470 million years in the making …
The hugely popular first issue of the new Evolution of Life series «Ammonite» raised high expectations and anticipation for ist successor. The 2016 coin now presents the Ordovician period with a stunning, partially excavated trilobite, which is based on a real, 470-million-year-old fossil found near St. Petersburg, Russia.
The original measures nearly 8 centimetres and belongs to the species Cheirurus ingricus. As expected of the series, the trilobite is minted in impressive relief with a brilliant red-gold finish. The half gram gold spin-off series «Evolution» features the same fossil design in minute detail.
