Dinosaur coins – level 2

18-12-2023 15:00

The Royal Mint together with the Natural History Museum launched a new set of coins which feature dinosaurs.

The three-coin collection showcases the tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus, and diplodocus, each on its own coin. Artist Robert Nicholls designed the coins with the help by the museum. Some of the coins include color to depict dinosaurs in their habitat. Prices start at £11.

This release is part of the Mint’s Tales of the Earth series, which celebrate ancient creatures and dinosaurs. If you like dinosaurs, you can buy the coins on the Royal Mint’s website.

Difficult words: showcase (to show), habitat (the place where an animal or plant naturally lives), depict (to represent by drawing or painting).

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