Background Information For Emperor Penguin Chicks Coin BAT:
The walk of the Penguins.
The Emperor Penguin is the tallest heaviest of all living penguin species. Further, it is found exclusively in Antarctica. Importantly, these Penguins are famous for journeys of adults early in each Antarctic Winter. Thus, March and April see mature Emperor Penguins travel to nesting areas. The penguins often walk 31-75 miles inland in temperatures as low as -40°F.
The female penguin lays 1 egg in May or early June. Later, the female transfers the egg to the male. The male then looks after the egg. The female Emperor Penguin returns any time after hatching up to 10 days afterwards. Significantly, she manages to find her mate among the hundreds of fathers by his call. Next, she takes over care of the chick. This enables the males to head for the sea to feed. The males return 24 days later. This coin clearly details 2 tiny Emperor Penguin chicks. Further, an adult Penguin is in the background. Thus, the coin perfectly recreates life in this amazing Territory.
