More info

Every single continent has yielded trilobite remains. The biggest species (Isotelus rex) was some 28 inches long, while the smallest measured less than a millimeter from end to end. Some sported defensive spines, while others had smooth, rounded shells. And whereas certain trilobites came with disproportionately large eyes, many deep-sea species were blind. Their debut roughly coincided with the dawn of the Cambrian period. During this game-changing chapter in Earth’s history, multi-celled organisms went through an apparent explosion in diversity, or at least an explosion in life forms that leave fossils. New creatures—including a barrage of mollusks and arthropods—seem to have evolved at an unprecedented rate. The Cambrian also saw trilobites become the most common and diverse animals on the planet. However, trilobites began to decline when the period ended some 500 million years ago. Though the invertebrates stuck around for another 240 million years, they’d never again be so successful.


The reverse of the coin depicts a Trilobite fossil in sensational high-relief. The coin is also selectively Red Gold plated. On the bottom of the coin, the inscription: “Trilobita”- the name of the coin and of the fossil. In the right side, the inscription: “Ordovician Period”, on the bottom: “Evolution of Life” - the name of the series and “2016” – the issue year. On the obverse the Coat of Arms of Mongolia, the weight and the fineness of Silver: “1 Oz 999 Silver”, the face value: “500 Togrog” and some symbols of life.
