The King Penguin 2017 50p Cupro Nickel Coin Coin Quality

The King Penguin is a very large species of penguin, second only to the Emperor Penguin and reaches a height of about 100cm and weight of 18kg. They sustain themselves on a diet of little fish and squid which they dive to extraordinary depths of over 100m to catch. The Plumage of the King penguin is comparable to the Emperor Penguin with a contrasting brilliant yellow/orange spot at the top of the chest. The King penguin likewise has this same orange on its cheek spots where this is much lighter on the Emperor.

The King penguin is discovered Sub-Antarctic islands such as the Falkland Islands and the population, currently at 2.2 million is in fact increasing. Similarly to other penguins the King has two groups of predators, those who consume its eggs such as Petrals and Skua and those who hunt adult penguins such as the Leopard seal and the Orca. King penguins normally begin to recreate at the age of about 6 and they are serially monogamous which means that they will have one partner each year that they will stay loyal to.

The reverse features a large adult male King Penguin with his smaller female buddy lovingly touching their beaks. The obverse features a brand-new and unique effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

This delightful coin completes the collection. All coins are of the best strike you could get at the price they are offered. This limited addition will only gain in value in the years to come.

Scratch on coin
Thursday, 21 September 2017  | 

This is the first time I have ordered from this site I always order from another site but I missed one coin. I was disappointed as there was a small scratch on the coin. I did message you and you said I can send it back and you will send another one but dont worry it is just getting around to doing it as so busy working never mind I will just keep it.

I now have 2 sets of Penguin 50p coins.
Only one more left before I complete the whole set.
By far my favourite set of modern coins.
Well packed and sent very quickly.
10 out of 10.
