Evolution of Life: Diplocaulus
This year’s release of our Evolution of Life series is the salamander-like Diplocaulus which lived in the perm age around 250 – 300 million years ago.
As a water dweller with a size of 0.5 – 1.0 meter this fossil lived on small fishes and tadpoles. The Diplocaulus probably used its flattened tail and eye-catching boomerang shaped skull to create an uplift from the seabed when a prey was detected.
This prehistoric fossil is now featured on an impressively detailed smartminting© high relief coin. It is plated in rose gold on an antique finish rock matrix background.
Mongolian emblem and coin inscriptions set on an antiqued background.
Presented in custom wood packaging. A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
