2016 Mongolia Evolution of Life 2015 - Trilobite Silver Coin
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.
