2017 Polar Babies - Emperor Penguin 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin

The latest release in the adorable Polar Babies series features the amazing Emperor Penguin.

Reaching heights of 115cm and weighing up to 40kg, the Emperor Penguin is the largest of all 18 living penguin species. These incredible birds are found in Antarctica, where temperatures can drop to −40°C during winter.


Code: 1302

Amazingly, the Emporer Penguin's breeding season is in the Antarctic winter, during some of the worst weather conditions on earth.  They can survive these extreme temperatures due to its feathers, which provide 80-90% of its insulation and a layer of fat that can be up to 3cm thick. The adult Emporer Penguin features striking yellow colouring which becomes lighter down to the chest area.

Struck from 99.99% pure silver, the coin features an emporer penguin chick resting on ice. The obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 2017 $5 Queen's Baton Relay Fine Silver Proof Coin.
