Penguins cope very well in the cold which is why they are very much at home in the Antarctic, especially as some of them breed in the coldest conditions on the planet.  Their short outer feathers overlap each other, much like the tiles on a roof, which forms a thick, waterproof layer.  Underneath are fluffier feathers which provide warmth.  As a rule, the larger the penguin is, the easier it is for it to conserve heat.  It is hard to believe that some breeds are so good at keeping warm that they do sometimes encounter the problem of overheating during the Summer.  Pobjoy Mint is therefore excited to announce the release of the fourth coin in the series of five coins featuring the Penguins of Antarctica which continues to be exceptionally popular with collectors and penguin lovers alike.  The penultimate coin in the series of five coins features the Gentoo Penguin.

The design on the coin itself features a male and female Gentoo penguin.  The Pobjoy Mint exclusive Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the coin. The coin is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish with the penguins portrayed in colour.  A special colour album, which is sold separately, has been designed to house all five coins.

*This coin is sold in a 50pence shaped capsule inside a blue pouch. If purchased with an album no pouch will be supplied. Specific die mark will be allocated randomly with your purchase and therefore it is not guaranteed.*
