Lunar-themed coin programs are incredibly popular in the precious metals market. Starting in 1996 with Perth Mints series, lunar coin series have now spread across the world, and mints from North America to Asia have their own releases. Today, Provident Metals is offering the 2016 British Lunar Monkey 1 oz Silver Coin in near-perfect condition.


  • Ships in a plastic slab from the NGC.
  • 3rd release in the Shengxiao Series from the Royal Mint.
  • Each coin contains 1 Troy oz of .999 silver.
  • Given an MS69 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
  • Has a face value of 2 (GBP) that is backed by the British government.
  • Has a deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish.
  • Designed by British-Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho.

Each of the coins in this listing was given a near-perfect grade from the NGC. Coins with MS69 grades must have their full, original mint luster. A maximum of two minor detracting flaws allowed on the surface of these coins.

The DPL designation denotes that a bullion coin has features of a proof specimen. This means that the surface of each coin will have a deeply-mirror finish, with frosted design elements.


On the obverse of each of these coins, you will find the brand new image of Queen Elizabeth II. This new image was created by Jody Clark, who was just 33 when the design was unveiled in 2015. Clark is the youngest artist to create a rendition of the Queen for British currency. Along with this new image, there are several engravings on this side of the coin.


The reverse face of the coin showcases the new lunar-themed image. For 2016, the Year of the Monkey, you will find the image of Rhesus monkeys swinging through the trees. You can also see the Chinese symbol for monkey, as well as the weight, metal content, year of issue, and purity of the coin.


The Royal Mint debuted the Shengxiao Series in 2014 with the Year of the Horse Coin. All of the coins in this series have been designed by Wuon-Gean Ho.
