The Macaroni Penguin was given its name by early English explorers who compare the orange/yellow plume feathers of the Macaroni Penguin to the feathers found in a hat known as a "Macaroni". These orange feathers make this penguin stand out from the rest as they provide a striking contrast against the penguins' environment.

They are one of six species of crested penguin and very closely related royal penguin. They can dive anywhere between 15-70 metres and can hold their breath for up to three minutes. Macaroni penguins spend around six months at sea while foraging for fish.

Adults weigh on average 5.5 kg (12 lb) and are 70 cm (28 in) in length. The male and female are very similar in appearance; the male is slightly larger and stronger with a relatively larger bill. Like all penguins, it is flightless, with a streamlined body and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine lifestyle.

The design on the coin itself features a single Macaroni penguin. The Pobjoy Mint exclusive Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the coin.
