Following the release of the second coin in the new series of Falkland Island Penguin 50p coins, we are delighted to announce the release of the third coin of the new set of five coins featuring the five breeds of penguin that are resident on the Islands at some point during the course of the year. 

The coin features a head shot of a King penguin shown in glorious colour which really highlights the broad cheek patch contrasting with surrounding dark feathers and yellow-orange colour at the top of the chest that they are known for. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizheadshot

The king penguin is the second largest penguin species in the world with an overall population estimated at 1.2 million. In the Falkland Islands, there are more than 1,000 breeding adults and over 500 chicks are raised each year. Juveniles are covered in brown fluffy plumage and often appear larger than their parents. It is thought that the Falklands king penguin population expansion may be due to overcrowding further south at South Georgia.

*This coin is sold in a 50pence shaped capsule inside a blue pouch. If purchased with an album no pouch will be supplied. If more than 14+ coins have been purchased, please note no pouches will be included and your coins will be dispatched in tubes.**

Known as the penguin capital of the world, it is hard to believe that back in the 18th Century these beautiful birds were victimised for oil and, in the case of some breeds, for their beautiful skin. Thankfully, conservation and awareness has changed this and the penguins are now a favourite with tourists.
