Penguins were originally considered to be very primitive birds and a party of men from Captain Scott’s famous expedition when on what they called ‘the worst journey in the world’ to prove this point. However, this theory was wrong and penguins are known to be highly evolved to enable them to live in the coldest places on our planet. Although they have feathers and wings, penguins cannot fly. Instead they have evolved into the most proficient divers and swimmers of all birds – they are literally able to fly through the sea. Pobjoy Mint is therefore excited to announce the release of the third 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 third coin in the series of five coins features the Emperor Penguin.
The design on the coin itself features a male and female Emperor 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.
