2012 P Australia Silver Antarctic Territory Emperor Penguin 1oz Proof PR69 DCAM FS PCGS
This fabulous release features the Emperor Penguin, a species popularly depicted in the Happy Feet movies. Don’t get left out in the cold, as previous coins in this series are no longer available! The coin’s reverse depicts a coloured image of Emperor Penguins and two chicks standing on ice floes, which appear within the outline of Antarctica. The Perth ‘P’ mintmark is included in the design. Distinguished by a bright red-orange bill and white eye patches, the Emperor Penguin is the largest of 17 penguin species, the deepest diver of any bird, and the only animal to winter on Antarctica's open ice. In order to survive the biting cold, Emperor Penguins are very social creatures that huddle together to conserve warmth. Each penguin spends time in the middle of the huddle to stay warm, but accepts when it is his time to move to the perimeter.
