3 euro coin dedicated to the Spinosaurus, Brilliant Uncirculated.
GLOW IN THE DARK!
First coin of the new Series "Supersaurus".
At 18 metres in length and weighing a whopping 9 tons, the “Spinosaurus Aegyptus” was the largest carnivore to have ever walked the Earth, even outranking that most iconic of prehistoric predators, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Meaning "spine lizard", the Spinosaurus lived about 100 million years ago in what is now known as North Africa, as they were discovered for the first time in Egypt in 1912.
The head and jaws of the dinosaur were long and narrow, not unlike those of the contemporary crocodile, and like that semiaquatic reptile, the Spinosaurus is thought to have been at home both on land and in water.
