After the recent release of the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands Penguin Series, Pobjoy Mint are delighted to announce a limited edition Proof Fine 1/25oz Gold coin featuring the Macaroni penguin to complement this immensely popular series.
The four-pound Gold coin has been released on behalf of the South Georgia and The South Sandwich Islands with an incredibly small issue limit.
Named after an unusual Macaroni hairstyle of the 18th Century, Macaroni Penguins have orange tufty plumes for eyebrows. These orange feathers make this penguin stand out from the rest as they are often striking against the penguins' environment.
The design on the coin itself features a single adult Macaroni Penguin. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.Show more
There is an estimated population of 12 million breeding pairs but only a proportion of these live in the Antarctic region. The species is very colonial and form large colonies of hundreds of thousands of birds. They are among the more vocal of the Penguins, especially when establishing their territories.
They can travel 250 miles (400km) just to find a hunting site and are known to spend 6 months at sea whilst foraging for food. They have been recorded diving as deep as 100 metres (330 feet) just to hunt their food.
