The Quetzalcoatlus dominated the skies during the Late Cretaceous Period. One of the largest flying animals in history, the Quetzalcoatlus was a member of the Pterosaur species, a species of flying reptiles that roamed the skies from the late Triassic until the end of the Cretaceous.
Pterosaurs such as the Quetzalcoatlus were the earliest known animal species to evolve the ability to power their own flight. The wings of animals such as the Quetzalcoatlus were formed by a membrane of skin stretched out over forearms and limbs that were made of hollow bones, much like modern birds.
The obverse of 2021 1 oz Colorized Silver Quetzalcoatlus Coins features the Congolese coat of arms. Since 1997, the coat of arms for the nation has changed several times. The modern seal found here was adopted in 2006 and is similar to the seal used by the Congo from 1963-1971, by Zaire from 1971-1997, and again by Congo from 1997-1999. The nation’s tumultuous political state over the past several decades led to many changes, but the central theme of a leopard head flanked by an elephant tusk and a spear has remained the same.
On the reverse side of 2021 Colorized Quetzalcoatlus Coins is a depiction of the massive Pterosaur in flight. There is not one, but three Quetzalcoatlus featured within this colorized design field as the animals soar above a river that winds through a mountain range.
These 2021 1 oz Colorized Silver Congo Quetzalcoatlus Coins come with individual acrylic capsules. Each Brilliant Uncirculated specimen has a thin layer of colorized lacquer that helps bring the designs to life.
