Add beautiful Gold Bullion to your personal collection and memorialize the Year of the Monkey with this 2016 Perth Mint 1 oz Gold Coin. Each coin is made of two troy ounces of .9999 fine gold by Australia’s Perth Mint, and is a part of its Lunar Series II.
The reverse of this gold coin shows a monkey sitting in a peach tree. In Chinese culture, the peach represents longevity and health. This elaborate design also depicts a Chinese character for “monkey” and the inscription “Year of the Monkey.”
People born during the Year of the Monkey are believed to have specific characteristics that can be connected to that animal (each year and animal is different). The characteristics of the monkey that people born during this year exhibit are optimism, intelligence, adventure, wit and ambition. The monkey is the ninth of 12 animals in the 12-year lunar calendar. The Year of the Monkey officially begins Feb. 8, 2016.
The obverse of this gold coin carries a new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II with the inscriptions “Australia”, “2016”, and the coin’s weight, metal purity, and legal tender value. Her Majesty became the longest reigning British Monarch on Sept. 9, 2015, passing Queen Victoria, her great-great grandmother.
Each of these gold coins is produced by the Perth Mint and backed by the Australian government, which guarantees the weight and purity of each coin. Even though it has legal tender value, its actual worth is in its gold content.
Individual Perth Mint Gold Monkeys will be packaged and shipped in original mint plastic capsules. Each coin will be shipped in the exact condition it was received from the mint.
