    1oz South Africa, Natura Euparkeria, 2019, Silver - A R25 fine-silver Natura is issued for the first time in Silver in 2019, sharing a design with the smallest gold Natura coin in the series, the R5 1/20oz 24ct gold coin. Although dated 2019, this coin belongs with the 2018 Archosaur series. Depicted on the reverse is the Archosauriform together with its scientific name ‘Euparkeria’, the word ‘Natura’, the denomination, the mass and metal value of the coin.

    Euparkerias dominated the landscape of Southern Africa more than 200 million years ago during the Triassic Period. The species is believed to have arisen during either the Permian or Triassic Period of life on Earth, but the consensus from the fossil record is that this broad species increased its distribution during the Triassic Period.

    The specific member of the Euparkeria species featured in this design is the Euparkeria capensis. A reptile, the creature lived about 235 million years ago during the Middle Triassic Period and when you look at it, you can see the elements of both its living representatives. Birds and crocodilians are related to this creature and you can see it in the bird-like figure and reptilian features of the beast.
