A new chapter in the award-winning Natura series introduces palaeontology, in recognition of South Africa’s significance to this field and study of plant and animal fossils. In this first instalment of the palaeontology-themed coins, the focus is on "Rise of the Dinosaurs – Archosauria" over the five 24ct gold coins. The Archosauria - crocodiles, pterosaurs, dinosaurs and birds - were magnificent beasts which ruled over the land and sky for 180 million years, from the Triassic to the Cretacecous periods. The Archosauriforms evolved at the end of the Triassic, finally taking over the last enclaves of synapsid domination. Each coin in this set depicts a different Archosauriform, together with its scientific name, the word "Natura", the denomination, mass and metal value of the coin.
This set is made up of a R100 1oz gold coin and a medallion: The privy mark R100 coin illustrates the highly successful primitive theropod dinosaurs named Coelophysids, which occurred worldwide from the late Triassic to early Jurassic. The sterling-silver rectangular medallion features the logo of the South African Mint and hallmark on the reverse, while the obverse shows footprints of the Coelophysis rhodesiensis together with the year 2018 in Roman Numerals ‘MMXVIII’.
