The release of the Jurassic Park feature film was groundbreaking in its use of life-sized animatronic dinosaurs. While the film is set on the fictional island of Isla Nublar off Central America’s coast, the film was not actually filmed near Costa Rica. Filming for most of the blockbuster took place in California and Hawaii.
Jurassic Park was previewed at the Uptown Theater in Washington D.C. on June 9, 1993, before its broader release. The film hit theaters across the United States on June 11 and would go on to a global release in the weeks and months to come. With total box-office sales of $914 million worldwide following its release, the film was the highest-grossing of 1993 and, at the time, the highest-grossing film in history.
On the obverse side of 2020 Niue Jurassic Park Silver Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile bust of the Queen was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. Used on British coins from 1998 to 2015 and Australian coins from 1999 to 2018, this effigy of the Queen with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara continues in use on coins for Commonwealth nations such as Tuvalu and Niue.
The reverse face of 2020 1 oz Jurassic Park Silver Coins features the iconic logo of the novel and feature film Jurassic Park. The image shows a T-Rex skeleton in left-profile relief with the creature’s massive jaws open to expose its sharp teeth. Its short arms reach out into the design field as well.
These 2020 1 oz Niue Jurassic Park Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are packaged individually inside of plastic flips, in tubes of 20 coins, or inside of Monster Boxes of 500 coins.
