Strengthen your Silver Bullion collection and celebrate the Year of the Monkey with the 2016 5 oz Year of the Monkey Silver Coin. Each silver coin was manufactured with five troy ounces of .999 fine silver by the Perth Mint, one of the industry’s most trusted sources for Sovereign Mint silver and gold bullion.

The reverse of each intricate 5 oz silver coin showcases two monkeys – an adult and a baby – sitting on a branch in a peach tree; the baby holds out a peach with outstretched right arm. Peaches are a symbol of good health and a long life in Chinese culture. “Year of the Monkey” and the Chinese symbol for “monkey” are inscribed on the design.

Year of the Monkey coins celebrate the ninth animal in the Lunar calendar, which consists of 12 animals on a 12-year cycle. A person born during a Year of the Monkey (starting officially on February 8, 2016) are though to be optimistic, witty, intelligent, and adventurous.

Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse. Inscriptions of the Her Majesty’s name, the coin’s weight and denomination, “AUSTRALIA” and “2016” are engraved around the profile. Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning British Monarch on Sept. 9, 2015 when she passed her great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria.

This 2016 Year of the Monkey coin is part of the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II that pays tribute to the lunar calendar. Each 5 oz .999 fine silver coin is guaranteed pure as each is produced by the Perth Mint and is backed by the Australian government. With the popularity of the Lunar Series II, the remarkable designs of each release and its global recognition, these Year of the Monkey coins are ideal additions to any Precious Metals portfolio or IRA.

Each Brilliant Uncirculated coin will ship in a plastic capsule in the exact condition they were received from the mint.
