Mary Anning – One of Britain’s Greatest Fossil Hunters

In the 19th Century, near her home in Lyme Regis, Mary Anning made a series of remarkable fossil finds. These discoveries contributed to changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the earth itself. As a working-class woman, however, Mary was denied academic acclaim in the scientific circles of her time.

With a major motion picture released in 2020 on the life of this female pioneer starring Kate Winslet, this coin is sure to attract the attention of both numismatists and historians alike.
