The sixth issue of the ‘Prehistoric Life’ Series from the Congo is dedicated to the Quetzalcoatlus. The motive of this bullion coin, struck from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver, depicts the Quetzalcoatlus in flight. A mountainous landscape with other individuals is depicted in the background. Above his spread wings are the inscriptions “PREHISTORIC LIFE”, “QUETZALCOATLUS”, “72 – 66 MIO YEARS BC” and the year of issue, 2021. The reverse features the coat of arms of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Quetzalcoatlus belongs to the genus of pterosaurs and was one of the largest flying animals in the history of the Earth. It lived in the late Upper Cretaceous in North America and could reach a wingspan from 11 to 13 meters. The pterosaur’s hollow bones allowed it to be relatively light. Among researchers, it is believed that the weight was about only 70 to 200 kilograms. Although they lived together with the dinosaurs, the appearance of a Quetzalcoatlus is often compared to a feathered snake though that line of though is under revision.
