EVOLUTION OF LIFE: HOMINOID 2021 Mongolia 1oz silver coin

This year’s release of our Evolution of Life series, we meet one of our oldest ancestors – Paranthropus.

During the Quaternary period, an era dating back roughly two and a half million years and continuing to this day, several phases of glaciation (commonly known as ice ages) changed the climate and sea level to such an extent that they had a lasting impact on the global environment. These variations led to a rapid evolution in life. An example of this was the evolution of Hominidae or Hominins, the family of ancient apes which we evolved from. Paranthropus is one of our earliest ancestors to use tools and fire and became extinct around 600,000 years ago as other species of Hominins gradually took over.

This “Grand Dad” of mankind is now featured on an impressively detailed smartminting high relief coin.  It is supplemented by an Oldowan stone which is the prehistoric tool that dates back to the early stone age.  The shimmering rose gold plated bones on an antique finish rock background make this coin a perfect addition to your collection.  All previous releases of thsi series are sold out and we expect this one to rapidly become extinct as well!!
