3-euro series Supersaurs: fascinating and frightening

The Supersaurs series brings prehistoric giants back to life in the shape of 12 superb glow-in-the-dark coins. Each one is dedicated to a prehistoric behemoth and has a face value of three euros. Coin collecting is fun and our glow-in-the-dark Supersaur coins can bring prehistoric animals back to life both early in the day and late at night!

Our goal is to keep the price of € 12.60 unchanged throughout a series and thus across several years. We managed this in the case of the Colourful Creatures series. Although the price of the new coins has increased, we guarantee that the price will not vary for the duration of the Supersaurs series.

Supersaurs

In the Tracks of the Supersaurs

The heyday of prehistoric reptiles began around 230 million years ago and they ruled the Earth for more than 160 million years. More than 1,000 different types of these extinct giants have already been found. The largest and most impressive animals to have ever lived, dinosaurs colonised all the continents and came in a huge variety of shapes and sizes.

WHEN A DINOSAUR IS NOT A DINOSAUR

Not every dinosaur is actually a dinosaur. In the Mesozoic period, what we commonly refer to as ‘dinosaurs’ took over virtually all types of habitat on the planet. Large marine dinosaurs crossed the seas. Horned, armour-plated and equipped with razor-sharp claws and teeth, terrestrial dinosaurs roamed the land, while flying dinosaurs with wing spans of over 10 metres dominated the skies. However, these three groups were not related to each other, developed independently and can be clearly differentiated from each other. Indeed, only the dominant vertebrates that lived on land during the Mesozoic period can actually be classed as dinosaurs. The animals that lived in the sea during the age of the dinosaurs were marine reptiles, not dinosaurs, and flying reptiles, such as the pterodactyl, are not considered dinosaurs either. However, as the majority of the Supersaurs that feature in our coin series and its Collector album are attributed to the dinosaur group, we allow ourselves to use the generic term ‘dinosaur’ even though they are not all scientifically classified as dinosaurs.

IN THE TRACKS OF THE SUPERSAURS

Since the discovery of the existence of the dinosaurs around 200 years ago, our concept of the prehistoric creatures has continued to evolve. Thanks to the work of prehistoric researchers, also known as palaeontologists, our knowledge of the world of dinosaurs has improved enormously. New information is constantly coming to light; for example, the discovery of feathered dinosaurs was a scientific sensation.

THE COLLECTOR ALBUM ANSWERS MANY QUESTIONS

Which dinosaur was the most sophisticated predator? Which had the longest claws, the most powerful bite, the strongest armour. Which was the most intelligent, the smallest, the most dangerous, the most unusual? The special characteristics of the prehistoric creatures featured make them all fascinating. With the help of detailed illustrations, informative descriptions and fascinating information about the latest scientific developments, dinosaur fans of all ages can start following dinosaur tracks.

Series subscription Information

We would like to thank our loyal customers for their keen interest in our 3 euro follow-up series.

Demand far exceeded all expectations and, unfortunately, the quota available for subscriptions has now run out. For organisational reasons, we do not have a waiting list for subscriptions, but we will inform you as soon as subscriptions become available again.

On the day of issue, we are pleased to be able to make some coins available for sale, while stocks last, both in our shop in Vienna and online. Please be aware that while the idea is to give as many people as possible the chance to purchase one of these beautiful coins, in both cases the quantity available is limited.
