Coins with Fossils on them

Being a Science Teacher (middle school 6-8th grade) one of the coin types I collect is science related coins.

 

I just got a Colorado 2007 (ordered from ebay) and was surprised to see the Fossil Stegosaurus on the back (the state fossil)

 

Anyway... that got me thinking.. are there any other coins out there with fossils on them?

 

I know of only the following:

 

The Colorado 2007

The Ammonite and Triolbites from Tethys

 

Any others???

Hi,

 

There's the Germany Geocoin National Park Swabian Alb showing an Ammonite, which can be seen here

And the Space Coast Geocachers Assoc coin (available for presale here:

http://www.coinsandpins.com/product_info.p...products_id=635 )

has a small ammonite on one side, too.

 

Thanks for the links... I wouldn't have seen the ammonite on The Space Coast coin

We are currently developing GeoFossils™.

 

There will be two types of coins, one displaying the fossil as though it is sitting on a stone, the other will be hidden under a translucent enamel.

 

They should be avaiable in September 2009.

 

Wow, please keep me informed on this one, I am definitely interested.

 

If I ever do a personal coin it will be a Phacops Rana.

Phacops Rana is the PA state fossil :P

 

Landsharkz made a trilobite geocoin this year.

I might use a coprolite for a personal :P . I used to have one sitting on my desk... I passed it around the class and even used it as a hall pass. After a few weeks of the kids bugging me about what it was out came the poem...

 

A hundred million years ago

A Dinosaur felt the urge to go..

It strained with all its might

and out popped this coprolite.

 

The look on their faces was great...
