For nearly 200 million years the earth was ruled by dinosaurs. According to scientists, that era came to an end around 66 million years ago when a gigantic meteor struck the earth. The result, a mass extinction event that wiped away nearly all life on the planet. The event, Muonionalusta Meteorite Impact, that ended the Mesozoic Era is captured in all its violent glory on this unique shaped and colorized High Relief coin from the prestigious Germania Mint.
