Obverse designs on the 2021 Colorized Congo Silver Archaeopteryx Coins include a depiction of the national coat of arms for the DRC. The national seal includes an image of a leopard head in front-facing relief. It is flanked on the right by a spear and on the left by an elephant tusk. The ribbon that runs beneath it bears the French-language national motto for the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Reverse visuals on 2021 1 oz Colorized Silver Archaeopteryx Coins include a depiction of the bird-like species of dinosaur. The archaeopteryx lived in the Late Jurassic Period roughly 150 million years ago. The species predominantly lived in what is now modern-day Germany. At this point in the planet’s history, Germany and much of Europe was a large archipelago of islands that boasts a shallow, warm, tropical sea. Due to the movement of the continents, this area was much closer to the equator than it is today, a factor that made warm, tropical seas in the region possible.
