This year’s release of our Evolution of Life series is the salamander-like Diplocaulus which lived in the perm age around 250 – 300 million years ago.

As a water dweller with a size of 0.5 – 1.0 meter this fossil lived on small fishes and tadpoles. The Diplocaulus probably used its flattened tail and eye-catching boomerang shaped skull to create an uplift from the seabed when a prey was detected.

Find this prehistoric fossil on an impressively detailed gold .9999 coin with a diameter of 11 mm.
