2017 Nothern Rockhopper Penguin 50 pence from the Falkland Islands

Due to high demand for this coin and folder we are limiting purchases to 2 per household at the present time. If you order over this amount then your order will be amended accordingly.

A new series of coloured fifty pence have been struck for the island that refers to itself as the penguin capital of the world. It has now been nearly ten years since Pobjoy Mint started striking currency for the Falkland Islands and felt they needed to do something special to mark this occasion.

The first penguin is the Rockhopper, a quirky penguin with it’s black and yellow spiky plume, red eyes and pink webbed feet, his wings are raised ready to hop. The Gentoo, King and Magellanic will be released throughout 2017 and to keep your penguins safe there is also a delightful collector’s pack to unite the set. These uncirculated cupro nickel diamond finish fifty pence have a low mintage of just 7,500 and with the prices of the I.O.M. fifty pences now commanding £100 plus, may be this might be a set for the future.

Please note******This coin is now a known error. The image you see is of a Northern Rockhopper and as we all know the Falkland Islands are in the southern hemisphere. This has now been corrected by Pobjoy but we have been lucky enough to get hold of these rare strikes. Only 3200 making this rarer than any Royal Mint issue. This also now means there will be 5 coins in the series
