Pobjot Mint is delighted to announce the release of the SECOND coin in our 2020 Penguin 50p Series, featuring the Gentoo Penguin. 

The Gentoo penguin is easily recognisable by the wide white stripe which extends across its head like a bonnet.  No one knows where the name ‘Gentoo’ comes from but they do live up to their Latin name Pygoscelis which means brush-tailed.  The Gentoo has the most prominent tail of all penguins which sticks out behind and sweeps from side to side as they walk.

Our stunning new 50 pence coin features a single adult Gentoo Penguin. This stunning news series is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish with each Penguin being portrayed in colour. A certificate of authenticity will also be provided with each coin. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint Exclusive Effigy of Her Majesty Quen Elizabeth II.

**This coin is sold 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**
