Comments

Leaellynasaura is a genus of small ornithischian dinosaur from the Albian-Aptian Epochs of the Cretaceous Period between 118 and 110 million years ago. First discovered in 1987 at Dinosaur Cove in Victoria, it was named after Leaellyn Rich, the daughter of Dr Tom Rich and Dr Patricia Vickers-Rich who organised digs with teams of volunteers on Victoria's rugged southern coastline.
Third of a five coin set.
