The big 150-year commemoration of the discovery of Archaeopteryx is this
August. Here's a bit of an update.
The Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin has a special exhibit that starts on
June 18, 2011.
Since 2007, the actual fossil specimen of the famous Berlin Archaeopteryx
(instead of a facsimile) has been on display. During the new exhibit, the
counterslab and the original fossil feather first mentioned by Hermann
Meyer will also be on display for a short time. A short description of
exhibit can be found at this link:
A news article in German about the commemoration:
A press release by the German Ministry of Finance about the commemorative
Euro coin and airmail postage stamp:
A story about the coin was posted on the DML back in February with a link
to a photo of the winning design:
Although the German press release mentions a 55 Cent stamp designed by
Julia Warbanow, I can't find a link to an image of the final official
choice to be released on August 11, 2011.
Different proposed designs for the stamp can be seen at:
