Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of the final coin of the popular set of five coins featuring the five breeds of penguin that are resident on the Falkland Islands at some point during the course of the year. With over 1 million penguins nesting of the Islands, it is no wonder that the Falkland Islands is known as the penguin capital of the world!

The smallest and most agile penguin in the Falkland Islands, the Southern Rockhopper is easily recognisable with its straight thin yellow eyebrows with yellow plumes hanging above and behind the eyes. Unlike other breeds of penguin who get around obstacles by sliding or awkward climbing, rockhoppers will try and jump over boulders and across cracks. The breed is classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature with the population declining by a third in the last three decades.

*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.**

This new series of coins features close-up head shots of the five penguins that inhabit the Falkland Islands, each shown in glorious colour to enhance the detail. We are also producing a new collector’s album to hold the set which sets the coins against a beautiful image of a group of King penguins and includes information on each breed.

The coin features a headshot of this delightful penguin in fabulous colour which really highlights their special plumage. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
