Your purchase of the 2016 Proof Australian Lunar Monkey 1 oz Gold Coin includes a perfect certification from the PCGS. Coins in PR70 condition exhibit full, original mint luster and have no detracting flaws of any kind present on the design elements or surface areas. Included with the coin is a DCAM label from the PCGS. This denotes the deep-cameo appearance of the coins, which means the designs are strong and frosted, while the background fields are deeply-mirrored and clear.


The obverse face of 2016 Proof Australian Lunar Monkey Gold Coins includes a right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest-reigning monarch in British history, Elizabeth II is shown here in a design from Ian Rank-Broadley wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head.


On the reverse side of 2016 Proof Australian Lunar Monkey 1 oz Gold Coins is the image of an adult monkey. This lone monkey sits on the branch of a peach tree. The peach tree is symbolic of longevity and immortality. The Year of the Monkey marks the birth year for those who are considered intelligent, optimistic, ambitious, and quick-witted.


The 2016 Australian Lunar Monkey release was the ninth of the Lunar Series II collection. The series featured various weights in both silver and gold, but only three proof gold options were offered. These 1 oz gold coins were accompanied by 1/4 and 1/10 oz coins. All three were also available together in a three-coin collector set.
