Coin Story

First coin from the series. During the Early Jurassic, animals and plants living both on land and in the seas recovered from one of the largest mass extinctions in Earth history. Many groups of vertebrate and invertebrate organisms important in the modern world made their first appearance during the Jurassic. Life was especially diverse in the oceans - thriving reef ecosystems, shallow-water invertebrate communities and large swimming predators, including reptiles and squid-like animals.

The reverse features plants and a few animals living in this period, on the background of the sea with crinoids (Saccocoma): from the left to the right clockwise: Dakosaurus, Megalneusaurus, Plesiosauria and Shonisaurus. Around the coin inscriptions: "LIFE ON EARTH", "JURA", "DINOSAURIA".

Obverse Design

The obverse features the effigy of Elizabeth II. On the background planet Earth, shape of continents as during Jurassic periods, as well as fossilized tree-ferns. Inscriptions: "ELIZABETH II" , "NIUE", "ONE DOLLAR", as well as "Ag 925", "2013"and "26.15g" (weight of pure metal).
