MACARONI PENGUIN GOLD PROOF (POBJOY MINT)
The Pobjoy Mint is currently working its way through their latest series of 50p Penguin coins but today, have taken a small detour with the theme as they release a 1/25th oz gold proof version of one of the birds. The Macaroni Penguin has been seen in the series itself, although the design of this one is new. It depicts a solitary bird, complete with its mini-Trump head covering, with the title inscribed above and the denomination below.
The seven-sided format of the fifty pence coin has gone, replaced by a standard round planchet with a £4 denomination. The coin is issued for South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands and has a very small mintage of 199 pieces. Packaging comprises one of the mints red snapper boxes, packaged in a themed shipper with a similarly themed certificate. Available now with shipping from next week.
