New Penguin Coin via South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands

Royalty and wildlife are the main themes of the most recent coins issued by the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. The two most recent releases, dated 2013, are a Weddell seal design and an extraordinary titanium blue whale coin.

Issues in 2012 included a re-release of the design first released in 2011 on the theme of the BBC television series ‘Frozen Planet’. The new release is dated 2012 and one version of it has been coloured to highlight the king penguin and chick design.
