    I’ve never thought of coins with dinosaurs on them as they would all be foreign and I’m not a collector of those types. But I do have a large collection of 1 ounce copper rounds. You can find almost anything on a copper round and I have a number of different dinosaurs on them. All can be purchased for $3.00 each or less. No photos available but I’ve sure got a number of them.

    And just think , if it wasn't for that damn asteroid Chicxulub 60 million years ago, any "humans" would be swinging from trees and have a furry body and long tail
    today :)

    I got this one from Cuba this week. It's interesting how thin this coin is. It's silver but doesn't have as much as you might think, given that it's around the size of a presidential dollar. 1993 cuba 5 pesos apatosaurus.jpg

    Why do so many of these coins have Britain's Queen Elizabeth II on them?

    Do the manufacturers consider her to be a "dinosaur"?

    Here's my latest additions from Australia. I feel like they're supposed to kind of form one picture if you put them in the right order. 2022 australia 1 dollar australovenator.jpg 2022 australia 1 dollar diamantinasaurus.jpg 2022 australia 1 dollar elaphrosaurine.jpg 2022 australia 1 dollar kunbarrasaurus.jpg
