TThe Magellanic penguin (Spheniscus magellanicus), named after Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, is a penguin indigenous to the Falkland Islands, where they nest in dense flocks. In appearance, they are similar to a Humboldt penguin, with black bodies, white abdomens and with two black bands between the head and the chest. Their heads are black with a white stripe running across their eyebrows. In the wild these penguins can live to around 25 years! Magellanic penguins are monogamous, remaining faithful to one partner throughout their life. They can produce up to two eggs each year with their spouse. Similarly to other penguins, Magellanic Penguins take it in turns to incubate their eggs while their partner swims out to sea to feed. Due to fish populations, becoming further and further from Penguin nesting grounds their partners are starving whilst they hunt. This, in addition to other environmental issues such as oil spills have resulted in a decline of about 20% in 20 years within some colonies and these penguins are now considered ‘Near Threatened’ Year2017Face Value50 PenceMetalCupro NickelWeight8gSize (mm)27.3mmPouch/COAYes/YesMintage7500 Please see our other listings for more great coins & treasures WHEN YOU CLICK THIS LINK Thank you!
