Its genus name may give the impression it is related to the modern-day rhinoceros, but that’s not the case: it just means “thick-nosed lizard.” And given the evidence of broken ribs in some specimens, it seems likely that this herbivore would head-butt its rivals!Edmontonia longicepsThis nodosaurid lived 71.5 to 71 million years ago and was named for the Edmonton Formation, now known as the Horseshoe Canyon Formation.Designs:Albertosaurus sarcophagusThe reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a three-quarter view of Albertosaurus sarcophagus (72-68 Ma). Rushing towards the viewer, the tyrannosaurid is open-mouthed to allow a view of its sharp, serrated teeth. The engraved carnivore is bursting out of a prehistoric forest dominated by Metasequoia conifers and Osmunda-type ferns. Engraved along the rim are the words “CANADA”, the face value “25 CENTS”, the species name “ALBERTOSAURUS SARCOPHAGUS” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.Pachyrhinosaurus canadensisThe reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a three-quarter view of Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis (72.2-71.2 Ma). Seemingly charging headlong at the viewer, the ceratopsid is shown with its head lowered to place emphasis on its frill and nasal boss. To the left of the engraved herbivore is a lake setting, where the sunset is reflected on the water. Engraved along the rim are the words “CANADA”, the face value “25 CENTS”, the species name “PACHYRHINOSAURUS CANADENSIS” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.Edmontonia longicepsThe reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a three-quarter view of Edmontonia longiceps (71.5-71 Ma). The nodosaurid is shown lumbering towards the viewer with its natural armour of spikes and bony plates prominently displayed. At its feet, Erlingdorfia leaves litter the wet ground. Engraved along the rim are the words “CANADA”, the face value “25 CENTS”, the species name “EDMONTONIA LONGICEPS” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Condition: Original Condition, Country/Region of Manufacture: Canada
