Description

This unique bullion release features a full colour design of the mythical Monkey King, pictured in a whimsical style with two young monkeys.

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 the Monkey King and his battle staff. He is standing on a mountain top surrounded by clouds along with his throne and two young monkeys. 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.

In multiples of 20, this coin will come in a mint roll. In multiples of 100, these coins will ship in a Perth Mint box.
