2022 Mercury's Horned Face Discovering Dinosaurs #2 $20 1OZ Pure Silver Coin

2021 Death Reaper coin is here. More Dinosaurs of Canada. A follow-up to 2021′s. Mercury’s Horned Face or. Is the featured star of our second. Coin, and the first things you’ll notice about this ceratopsid are the bony, wing-like protrusions on its head. Engraved on the coin’s reverse, its skull fossil is especially striking against the black rhodium-plated “rock” background, which pays tribute to the discovery that yielded another piece of Canada’s prehistoric past. Coin #2: Meet a relative of. Imagine the excitement of unearthing a new prehistoric species! Coin places you in the field and at the site of another discovery. The black rhodium background represents the hidden or unknown past. This dark design element keeps the focus on the engraved fossils that have helped paleontologists piece together the story of prehistoric Canada. Like the tyrannosaur on the first coin, this horned dinosaur is a relative “newcomer”-the 76-million-year-old. Was unveiled in 2014 and has never appeared on a coin until now. The fossil depicted on your coin has been verified for scientific accuracy by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Beneath the rhodium plating on your coin’s reverse, the engraved texture represents the thrill of discovery: it resembles the rock formation in Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park, where a. Skull fragment was found. FOR DINO LOVERS OF ALL AGES! Dinosaurs are a popular theme with collectors and Canadians of all ages. They’re also an important part of Canada’s natural heritage. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Designed by Canadian paleoartist Julius Csotonyi, the coin’s reverse features the fossilized skull of. A recently discovered horned dinosaur species. Beneath the black rhodium plating, the engraved texture represents the rock formation in Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park where a key fossil fragment was found. The obverse also features rhodium plating behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. It’s always a thrill to illustrate the newest additions to Canada’s amazing diversity of ceratopsian (horned) dinosaurs, whose uniquely shaped neck shields functioned as visual signals. For Mercuriceratops, the challenge was to accurately portray the weird squamosal skull bone (resembling the mythical winged helmet of Mercury) while creatively rotating the skull so that the elongated head could fit within the circular rim of the coin! Julius Csotonyi, Paleoartist. Mercuriceratops is an example of a dinosaur species that’s known from a single bone only. Species of several groups of dinosaurs, like horned dinosaurs and duckbilled dinosaurs, are all very similar to each other and can often only be distinguished based on differences on one or a few bones. For example, duckbilled dinosaur species often only differ based on the shape of their crest. In horned dinosaurs, it’s often the shape of the bones forming the frill (shield behind the head) that allows paleontologists to recognize different species. In the case of Mercuriceratops, paleontologists found a bone of the frill that was unlike any that had ever been found for any other species. That’s how they knew they were dealing with a brand new species, even though they knew nothing else about the rest of the body. François Therrien, Curator of Dinosaur Palaeoecology, Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Its unusual frill may look scary, but it likely helped. To attract a mate. Unveiled in 2014, this six-metre-long herbivore was described from near-identical skull fragments of two individuals-one recovered from Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta and the other from the Judith River Formation in Montana (United States)-hence the species name. Means Mercury’s horned face. It was named after Mercury, the Roman messenger to the gods, who is often depicted with wings on his helmet.

Your coin comes packaged in an exclusive Research and Development branded wooden box with a special certificate of authenticity. 13th coin minted in this exclusive R&D series! Mintage only 425 worldwide. Certificate of Authenticity Mintage #13 of 425. Royal Canadian Mint Summary. First new Enhanced elevation technique allows the focal point of the design to reach new heights thanks to the world’s first integrated hinge, which raises the relief above the coin’s surface. Rare prototype coin featuring the latest groundbreaking innovation from the Royal Canadian Mint’s R&D researchers. The latest innovation from our R&D lab raises the bar when it comes to dimensional design and allows the engraved focal point to reach new heights-literally. Introducing Lifted Engraving, a numismatic first that makes its world debut on this limited-edition prototype. The groundbreaking technology is a 3D approach to 2D coin art. It allows us to highlight a key design element by raising it above the engraved surface of the coin. To demonstrate its full potential, the never-before-seen technique has been applied to this 2020 pure silver version of the 1997 Flying Loon dollar. The loon you see lifting up from the coin’s surface is not an embellishment-it’s part of the coin. And so is the integrated hinge, which provides just the right amount of lift for our loon, and our new technology, to take flight on this prototype. How does it work? It’s all crafted from a single 99.99% pure silver blank and using the same minting process as a standard coin. The development of a new type of die makes it possible to strike the world’s first integrated hinge directly onto the coin’s surface. After deliberately cutting into the coin, the key relief (the loon) is then separated from the rest of the design using proprietary methods that “peel” away the field. And with both ends of the hinge coming together, the key relief is now in position to come out of the coin and greet the viewer.

This eye-catching coin delivers an uncommon view into the life of the beaver using “low poly” art, a visual technique from the video game industry. Individual polygons are used to build the image of two beavers constructing a dam, while geometric lines and sharp corners define the branches. Skillful coloring adds the perception of light, shadow and dimension-a unique keepsake that will capture the attention of coin collectors, nature and art lovers, digital artists, and gamers alike! EACH POLYGON IS DISTINCT: Each polygon is made distinct from the other through extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology, and advanced finishing techniques, while the application of bold color adds vibrancy and alters our perception of dimension and light. A fresh, modern take on Canada’s timeless icons: The fourth coin in the inventive new five coin Geometry in Art series, which reinterprets familiar Canadian emblems-the polar bear, the beaver, the caribou, the loon and the maple leaf-in a low poly art style. CUTTING-EDGE TECHNIQUES FOR A DIMENSIONAL DESIGN : Showcases the Mint’s exceptional level of craftsmanship and innovative artistic vision! UNIQUE USE OF LOW POLY ART: Breathtaking use of color: In keeping with the low poly art style, lustrous colors contribute to the perception of depth and shadows; exceptional engraving, relief, and the application of different finishing techniques add distinctiveness to the polygon shapes that form the stylized image of two beavers in the wild. An unforgettable addition to any collection-especially those with a wildlife, nature or Canadiana theme, or any that include the beloved symbols that have come to represent Canada: its land and its people. Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, for our Canadian customers, this coin is GST/HST exempt! Designed by Canadian artist Calder Moore, the coin features a stylized portrait of two beavers presented in an eye-catching low poly art style. Extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology, and advanced finishing techniques allow each polygon to appear distinct from the other throughout the design. The geometric lines and sharp corners recreate the branches used by the beavers as building material for their dam; yet these same lines are somewhat softened by the color variation between each polygon, playfully altering our perception of shadow, light and dimension, and conveying the rounded shape of each beaver. The half-submerged perspective allows an underwater glimpse of the dam rising up from the mud at the bottom of the pond, while the deep blue sky above adds vibrancy to the green conifers along the rocky cliffs in the background.
