What is palæontology? Literally, the world translates from Greek παλαιός + ον + λόγος [ old + being + science ] and is the science that unravels the æons-long story of life on the planet Earth, from the earliest monera to the endless forms we have now, including humans, and of the various long-dead offshoots that still inspire today. This community is open to anyone interested in paleontology, fossils, and evolution.

We welcome longtime collectors, as well as brand new ones and non-collectors. We can help you ID mystery coins, but we'll need clear, well-lit photos of both sides of each coin, and PLEASE LIMIT YOURSELF TO 10 COINS PER SUBMISSION, max. If you've inherited some coins we can help you ID and place a value on them, but IT IS STRICTLY AGAINST OUR RULES to make offers to buy and sell on this subreddit. Please don't do it. Thanks!
