In 1824 William Buckland, an eccentric clergyman and palaeontologist produced the first scientific description of what became known as a dinosaur based on fragments of jaw and bone found in Oxfordshire. Buckland named the creature Megalosaurus, which means ‘great lizard’.

Developed in conjunction with the Natural History Museum, this is the first time a dinosaur has featured on an official UK coin.
