PRE-ORDER your Iguanodon 50p BU Pack

The Iguanodon, known for its unique spike-like ‘thumbs’, was the second dinosaur to be discovered and described by Richard Owen in his ‘Dinosauria’ paper in 1842.   

And now, to celebrate the discovery of dinosaurs the Royal Mint has authorised for a series of 50p coins to be released. The second 50p features the Iguanodon dinosaur.

Named after its iguana-like teeth, Iguanodon fossils gave palaeontologists the first clues that dinosaurs had been reptiles. 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. 

You now have the exclusive opportunity to PRE-ORDER this coin before it is officially released in March, meaning you can be one of a select number of collectors to continue your dinosaur 50p collection.

Struck by The Royal Mint to a pristine Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your coin will arrive in its official Royal Mint presentation pack.

What’s more, it’s available to you today for the Royal Mint issue price of £10 (+p&p).

Your pre-order guarantee: We currently expect this coin to be released in March. Should there be any unforeseen changes to the delivery time we will contact you. You may cancel your reservation at any time prior to despatch by contacting us. You are covered by a full 30-day Money Back Guarantee once you have received your 50p.
