This second issue in the Natura-Series 'Palaeontology - Rise of the Dinosaurs' by the South African Mint is dedicated to the Coelophysis Rhodesiensis. In recognition of South Africa’s significance to the field of palaeontology and the study of plant and animal fossils, in 2019 the South African Mint has struck the first Natura silver coin. Archosaurs lived in Southern Africa over 200 million years ago and are regarded as the direct ancestors of the dinosaurs. The rise of the archosaurs and their evolution is a significant event in the history of life on land, since they not only led to the evolution of dinosaurs and birds, but also to the pterosaurs (flying reptiles) and crocodiles. The motive of this coin depicts the Coelophysis Rhodesiensis and the inscriptions "Rise of the Dinosaurs", "Archosauria", "South Africa" and "2020". The limited silver bullion coin is delivered in the original blister card of the South African Mint.
