Comments

This is the standard cupro-nickel circulation quality issue of the five penguin carollers, also available as a silver piedfort coin (mintage of 2000) and as a coloured 'diamond finish' numismatic product (mintage of 7,500).  It is perhaps something of an anomaly that this standard version is the rarest of all, with an issue limit of just 950    -  
  none dispatched to the Falklands for circulation.  The coin was only offered by Pobjoy Mint as one of five penguin theme coins sold together.
