Archosaurus Rise of the Dinosaurs, SA Mint

Recommended Posts

Presumably you mean the silver variant - In that case, I do not know. The Archosauria coins are part of the Natura collection which has been running since 1994, but they used to be in gold exclusively until 2019 when they released the silver Euparkeria coin and later the Coelophysis. 

The Archosauria part of the Natura collection in gold was released with 5 different coins in 2018:

Euparkeria (1/20oz) - 5R
Erythrosuchus (1/10oz) - 10R
Proterosuchus (1/4 oz) - 20R
Massospondylus (1/2 oz) - 50R
Coelophysis (1oz) - 100R

You can find the designs of all these here: https://www.samint.co.za/collectable-coins/product-archives/#tab-id-15 (click 2018 -> Natura)

Now for the silver ones, as far as I am aware they were looking to release these 5 in silver (1oz) as well, but staggered over a couple of years. So far the Euparkeria and Coelophysis have been released (both in 1oz and they come in blister cards), but further releases have not been made or announced, which is sad. I have both the silver coins and I can vouch for the fact that they look stunning. I really hope they'll release the other 3 as well.

Hope that answered some of your thoughts.

Definitely a shame. Some of the gold designs look amazing and this is a series that in terms of quality is really strong. The detail on background of the coins are so tight, it really is a piece of art as opposed to the majority of bullion and slightly premium coins nowadays. I hope the SA mint will reconsider.
