1/2 oz 2016 Lunar Year of the Monkey Colourized Silver Proof Coin | Perth Mint
Buy with Confidence
This proof coin has been beautifully enhanced with enamel colouring on both monkeys as well as the peaches.
For 2016, the Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrated the Year of the Monkey, the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
These superb quality releases are perfect for people born in "monkey" years - 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and in 2016 - who are regarded as clever, intelligent, flexible, quick-witted and versatile. Personality traits like gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life.
The reverse of each coin depicts adult and baby monkeys sitting in a peach tree, with the baby holding a peach. The peach tree is symbolic of immortality in Chinese art. The Chinese character for "monkey" and the inscription "Year of the Monkey" also appear in the design along with The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark, the year and weight. As well as appealing to silver coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar monkey.
This coin comes in a Perth Mint display case and full colour box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
