The reverse of each ½ oz silver coin depicts an adult monkey sitting in a peach tree, with a baby monkey clutching a peach in its right hand. Peaches signify health and long life in Chinese culture. A Chinese character meaning “monkey”, and the words “Year of the Monkey” are also engraved on the reverse.

The official start of the Year of the Monkey is Feb. 8, 2016. The monkey is the ninth animal in the Chinese zodiac. People born during the Year of the Monkey are thought to be optimistic, intelligent, witty and adventurous.

The obverse features an image of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning British Monarch in history as of Sept. 9, 2015. The previous record holder was her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria. Her Majesty’s name is inscribed with “AUSTRALIA”, “2016”, “50 CENTS”, and “1/2oz 999 SILVER” around the portrait designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.

This Fractional Silver coin is an ideal investment for those interested in adding cost-effective silver to their collection of Precious Metals. Each .999 fine silver round was produced at Australia’s Perth Mint, one of the most trusted and respected sovereign mints in the industry. These ½ oz silver pieces are legal tender and backed by the Australian government.

Each coin is manufactured in Brilliant Uncirculated Condition and will ship in a plastic capsule for proper, long-term protection.
