The Natura Series Goes Prehistoric for Its First-Ever Silver BU Release

First released in 1994, the South African Mint’s Natura Series is unique in that the entire series comes struck with a new image or theme each year. This award-winning series has previously focused on animals from the South African region, but in 2018 the series shifted to paleontology.

And now, for the first time ever, the South African Mint has struck a Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) Silver Natura coin! What’s more, this 2019 release marks the first release of the Natura Rise of the Dinosaur series and features an instantly iconic Jurassic Park-like skeletal image of an Archosauria dinosaur on the obverse. On the reverse you’ll find the exciting image of the indigenous Euparkeria dinosaur chasing after its next meal.

The Euparkeria was a diminutive dinosaur from the Archosauria family that lived between 245-230 million years ago in what is today South Africa. About as big as an average house cat, this carnivorous little beast was definitely not something you’d want curling up on your lap! Scientists believe its oversized hind legs enabled it to run fast enough to sprint across the surface of water without falling in – and with a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth, this is not the kind of critter anyone would want to tangle with regardless of its size!

Each 2019 South Africa One-Ounce Silver Natura Euparkeria Dinosaur Coin comes beautifully displayed in its original government packaging consisting of an informative story booklet and a certificate of authenticity. Only 50,000 were struck so the time to get yours is now before our limited supply become extinct!

  • FIRST-EVER SILVER NATURA COIN – This Euparkeria Dinosaur coin is the first release in the South African Mint’s Natura Rise of the Dinosaur series.
