The Parasaurolophus was first discovered in 1920 in Alberta, Canada, by a University of Toronto field party. It received its official name Parasaurolophus walkeri in 1922 as a tribute to Sir Byron Edmund Walker of the Royal Ontario Museum. Meaning ‘near-crested lizard,’ the Parasaurolophus likely roamed North America and possibly Asia during the late Cretaceous Period. While the crest behind its skull is its most unique physical trait, scientists still wonder what exact purpose it served. Possibilities include sex differentiation, body temperature regulation, and mating purposes.
The obverse of 2022 Colorized Congo Silver Parasaurolophus Coins features the coat of arms of the Republic of Congo.
