Found in the Sub Antarctic to the Antarctic peninsula, the Macaroni is one of the six species of crested penguins.  The Macaroni Penguin has the largest population of all penguins, but in the Falklands occur in very small numbers and best amongst Rockhopper colonies in the Islands.  Like all penguins it is flightless, with a streamlined body and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine lifestyle.

The coin features a headshot of a Macaroni penguin which is shown in glorious colour which really highlights the most distinctive feature of this breed – the golden crests which start at the centre of the forehead and then sweep above the eyes.  The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
