After the amazing response to the first penguin in South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands Penguins 50p Series, Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of the second coin, featuring the Macaroni Penguin.The Macaroni Penguin was given its name by early English explorers who compare the orange/yellow plume feathers of the Macaroni Penguin to the feathers found in a hat known as a "Macaroni". These orange feathers make this penguin stand out from the rest as they provide a striking contrast against the penguins' environment. They are one of six species of crested penguin and very closely related royal penguin. They can dive anywhere between 15-70 metres and can hold their breath for up to three minutes. Macaroni penguins spend around six months at sea while foraging for fish.
The design on the coin itself features a single Macaroni Penguin. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy mint.
