Now, The Royal Mint has just released a brand new UK 50p series celebrating three of her greatest discoveries.
The second reptile to feature in The Mary Anning Collection is the Plesiosaurus – a marine reptile as large as 4.5 metres with fins that it used to swim through the water.
The creature on this 50p has been designed by renowned British palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls, with expert guidance by the Earth Sciences Department of the Natural History Museum.
Struck by The Royal Mint to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish – a higher standard to the coins you find in your change – your coin will arrive in its official themed presentation pack, designed by The Royal Mint.
