The huge, extinct, land dinosaur Edmontonia, found on the new, Canadian $10 Pure Silver Proof Coin with Color! This guy really is an armored tank!A Stunning, Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a highly detailed depiction of Edmontonia, and was reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Viewed in three-quarter profile, this colorful herbivore lumbers across the prehistoric landscape on its four powerful legs. Its pear-shaped head is closest to the viewer, while its rounded outline stands in contrast to the imposing appearance of the spike-covered armor, which protects its neck, back and tail. The lush vegetation that dominated Alberta’s landscape during the Late Cretaceous period fills the background around Edmontonia, all beautifully rendered through finely detailed engraving. The scientific accuracy of this depiction has been verified by palaeontologists at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.
