Plain / smooth
With an estimated population of around eight million pairs and living in colonies of over 100,000 pairs in some islands, the Chinstrap penguin is probably the most abundant penguin in the Antarctic region. Named after the band of dark feathers under the chin which looks like a strap keeping their hat on, they nest on ice-free slopes where they form a strong pair bond returning each year to the same nesting site with the same partner.
The design on the coin itself features a male and female Chinstrap 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.
