Splash-Struck Silver Coin

This ancient-looking coin features an engraving of the Marrella, the insect-like marine Cambrian anthropod.

This silver coin, issued by The Royal Canadian Mint, is splash-struck. This means during its construction, the silver was purposefully allowed to spill beyond a modern coin's regular round shape. This technique produces an irregular shape, similar to Roman coins, and along with its textured antique finish lends the coin an ancient, almost pre-historic feel.

Due to its irregular shape, the coin may be larger and flatter but will always have a minimum diameter of 38 mm. Each coin varies, which makes your coin truly unique.

Historically accurate

Verified by Alberta's Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, your coin uses precision engraving to recreate the fossil remains and the textured appearance of sandstone, much like the rock in which the original fossil was found.

Packaging - No Plastic Capsule for a Better Experience

Since your coin's irregular shape does not fit in a typical plastic capsule, it's coin packaged in a ready-to-display floating frame. Measuring 80 mm x 80 mm x 34 mm, this framed presentation makes for one-of-a-kind wall art and a sure conversation piece.
