For many the world of dinosaurs has held our imagination for many years, to think that some of these massive creatures roamed the earth before man, is truly wonderful.
William Buckland (1784-1856 was an English Paleontologist who made a detailed documentation of the dinosaur fossil he named for it ‘Megalosaurus’ which was discovered in Kirkdale. Overtime more fossils where found and British anatomist Richard Owen, was the first scientist to realise that the fossilised remains of three creatures, all shared common characteristics, he used the term ‘Dinosauria’ to describe this new group of animals.
This coin features the second of the three dinosaurs discovered the Iguanodon.
