1 oz. 2021 Archaeopteryx silver coin minted by Scottsdale Mint.

Archaeopteryx is a rather peculiar genus of dinosaur, being a cross between a feathered dinosaur and a modern bird. It was considered, until recently, to be the oldest bird, although later finds showed that there were other species.

According to the work of archaeologists, remains have been found in what is now southern Germany, dating it to the Late Jurassic period, some 150 million years ago. It is similar in size to a crow, although it has a skeletal tail and three toes on its legs.

Its design appears on the cross of the coin. On the outermost part of the coin we find the name of the collection and the historical periods of the dinosaurs. In the centre of the coin is the design of the animal, with its two flapping wings, its secondary clawed toes and its feet perched on a tree. In the background is a unique landscape with several mountains and trees.

The face has the same structure as the cross, except that there is also a succession of bas-relief dots following the edge of the coin. On this part is the name of the country where the coin is issued and its face value: 20 francs. In the centre is the coat of arms, consisting of a leopard's head, an elephant's tusk, a spear, a stone that serves as a base and a ribbon with the phrase 'justice, peace, work'.

The Archaeopteryx coin minted in 2021 by the Scottsdale Mint in 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver and has a diameter of 38.60 millimetres. Complete your Prehistoric Life collection and show off its spectacular design in the display cabinets at home!
