The Gentoo penguin is easily recognisable by the wide white stripe which extends across its head like a bonnet. No one knows where the name ‘gentoo’ comes from but they do live up to their Latin name pygoscelis which means brush tailed. The Gentoo has the most prominent tail of all penguins which sticks out behind and sweeps from side to side as they walk. The third largest species of penguin, the Gentoo is the fastest underwater swimmer of all the penguins and can actually reach speeds of up to 22 mph/36 kmh.

In the Antarctic, Gentoo penguins can be found close to the British Antarctic Survey research stations. The design on the coin itself features a male and female Gentoo 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.
