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 its 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. The half gram gold spin-off series «Evolution» features the fossil design in minute detail.
