The land around the South Pole, the Antarctic, is the coldest place in the world.  The temperature there has been known to fall below -80˚C/-112˚F. Like all Antarctic penguins, the Emperor, which is the tallest and heaviest of all penguins, has a thick layer of densely packed feathers which trap the air to keep the bird warm, acting as a thermal vest.  To celebrate the fact that this species not only survive but also manages to keep their young safe in these extreme conditions.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce the release of a 2019 coin on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory featuring The Emperor Penguin. The design on the coin itself features a male and female Emperor penguin with their newly born chick sitting on the feet of one of the adults. 

The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
