A truly iconic specimen, Diplodocus was one of the longest dinosaurs to exist and has been a common sight in literature, TV and film for more than 100 years. Now, The Royal Mint celebrates this iconic specimen with a coin dedicated to this incredibly long prehistoric herbivore.

Designed by palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls, the man behind the reverse designs for both The Royal Mint’s Dinosauria and Mary Anning collections, with guidance from Professor Paul Barrett of the Natural History Museum, this coin features the sizeable sauropod on full display, from its winding neck to its twisting tail, accompanied by the Diplodocus skeleton in the foreground.


  • Celebrates one of the most instantly recognisable dinosaurs of all time
  • The final release in a three-coin collection dedicated to iconic specimens in the field of palaeontology
  • Features a reverse design by Robert Nicholls, the artist behind both of the existing collections in The Royal Mint’s Tales of the Earth
  • Features the inscriptions ‘DIPLODOCUS’ and ‘JURASSIC’ in reference to the dinosaur itself and the period in which it lived
  • Accompanied by informative and educational packaging created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum
