Dinosaur coins – level 1

18-12-2023 15:00

The Royal Mint and the Natural History Museum make special coins with dinosaurs.

There are three coins with different dinosaurs – tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus, and diplodocus. The coins have pictures by artist Robert Nicholls. Some are colorful. They show dinosaurs in places where they naturally live. Rebecca Morgan from the Royal Mint is happy about these new coins. Maxine Lister from the Natural History Museum likes that the coins have famous dinosaurs.

These coins are part of a series which celebrates old animals and dinosaurs. You can get them from the Royal Mint’s website. The price starts at £11.

Difficult words: coin (small round piece of metal which people use ad money), series (a number of similar events or objects which come one after another).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What new series of coins are the Royal Mint and the Natural History Museum collaborating on, and where can they be purchased?
