Description:
This coin is fifth and last of the series " Life in the Earth ". The coin is dedicated to Quaternary, last of the periods in which it divides the age cenozoica, spreading this one for two million years up to the present.
In both sides of the coin big woolly mammals appear. A profile mammoth dominates the bottom of the obverse of the coin, which also shows the cranium and the fangs of a mammoth close to the line of the time that joins to the whole series. A scene of hunt in the Glacial epoch shows to the Homo sapiens brandishing torches of fire and lances in an assault to a giant beast represented in the back of the coin.
