Jurassic Park silver coin, 1 ounce minted by the New Zealand Mint in 2020.
Jurassic Park was, in the early 1990s, one of the films that most captivated audiences for its perfect presentation of a science fiction universe in which humans had been able to generate dinosaurs from DNA remains found in fossils.
It remains to this day one of the most watched classics of the era and aroused great curiosity about dinosaurs among young children. If you have seen the film, the design of the coin will bring back a lot of memories: it features the coin's logo.
It appears on the cross, on which we find the silhouette of the skull, neck, hands and part of the trunk of the famous Tyrannosaurus rex, one of the main characters of the film. The latter appears on a flat background that allows the eye to focus on him, whose drawing appears in a darker tone. Below it, the name of the film in the same font in which it appeared on the posters.
Above it we find the coin's specifications: the purity and the amount of metal with which it has been minted.
On the cross is the traditional Niue design of Queen Elizabeth II, in which she appears with a serious countenance wearing a crown with almost no decorative motifs. Above it, the face value of the coin (2 New Zealand dollars), her name and the name of the country where it was minted.
The Jurassic Park coin is minted in 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver, has a diameter of 40.6 millimetres and weighs 31.104 grams. Every lover of this film saga needs to have this bullion decorating their home!
