The obverse of 2021 Colorized Congo Archaeopteryx Silver Coins features the coat of arms for the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Adopted in 2006, this is the seventh coat of arms used by the nation. It features a leopard head in front-facing relief above a slab of rock with an elephant tusk on the left and a spear on the right. The ribbon across the design reads JUSTICE PAIX TRAVAIL, the French-language national motto of Justice, Peace, Work. Other inscriptions on this face of the coin include REPUBLIQUE DEMOCRATIQUE DU CONGO, 1 OZ AG 999.9, and 20 Francs.


On the reverse side of 2021 Colorized Congo Archaeopteryx 1 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of the winged dinosaur in a tree. The archaeopteryx lived between 152 million and 145 million years ago in what is now Germany in Central Europe. The design field includes colorization on the archaeopteryx and its lush background environment. The inscriptions around the edge of the design field include PREHISTORIC LIFE, ARCHAEOPTERYX, 152-145 MIO YEARS BC, and 2021. There are also inscriptions of the time frames for the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods in the prehistoric era on this face of the coin.


At the time the archaeopteryx lived, Europe was less of a solid continent and more of an archipelago of islands with a shallow, tropical sea at its heart. If you turned back time and watched the continents shift, Germany was located much closer to the equator in the Jurassic Period than it is today.
