The Macaroni Penguin has bright red eyes, and their beak is thick and orange, but on each side a fleshy pink area is visible. Known for its distinctive yellow crest the macaroni is a large penguin that moults once a year. With the crest an adult bird has an average height of around 70cm, the weight can vary drastically dependant on the time of year and the sex of the penguin.

The population is estimated at around 18 million which is a substantial decline in recent years recorded across numerous locations. Like most other penguins the Macaroni is a social animal in its nesting and behaviour.

The design on the coin itself features a male and female Macaroni 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.*
