The science of paleontology came to public prominence in America in the late Nineteenth century and cemented its place in popular consciousness with one of the most famous fossil finds of all in the early Twentieth. Fossil hunter Barnum Brown discovered the first recorded remains of Tyrannosaurus Rex at Hell Creek, Montana in 1902: and though it turned out the same dinosaur had been independently discovered and given different names on two prior occasions, it was Brown’s name that stuck. The gigantic predator with its four-foot jaws and six-inch teeth captured the imaginations of observers, and it has remained the best-known of the dinosaurs. It’s celebrated today by a shaped pure silver collectible with gold plating, the 2022 Republic of Chad Tyrannosaurus Dissected 3 oz Silver Coin.

The 2022 Republic of Chad Silver Tyrannosaurus Dissected Silver Coin is fully gold plated, contains three full ounces of pure silver, and features a boldly shaped design and detailed engraving. It comes fully insured by Provident Metals against any chance of loss or damage, and each coin ships in a themed case with a unique Certificate of Authenticity.


The coin’s obverse side presents a “dissected” view of the dinosaur that reveals details of its skeletal and muscular structure. This is accompanied by inscriptions of the year, country of issue, and its face value at the center of the dinosaur’s torso.


The reverse side of the coin is a realistic sculpture of the dinosaur, complete with its scaled hide. The inscription “Tyrannosaurus Dissected” appears on its tail.


The early history of paleontology was marked by one of the great scientific rivalries of the late 19th century between the wealthy gentleman scientist Edward Copes and the introverted, methodical researcher Othniel Marsh. Friends at first, the pair eventually found themselves in a bitter rivalry that saw them deploying armies of fossil hunters into the American West. In the course of that rivalry, called the Bone Wars, Copes happened across the vertebrae of a great dinosaur; little did he know that a decade after his find, the first identifiableTyrannosaurus Rexskeleton would be unearthed from a fossil bed in Montana and named by Barnum Brown. By that name, it would go on to be the most famous dinosaur of all for more than a century.
