Zodiac-inspired coins are extremely popular. In 1996, the Perth Mint launched its first Lunar Series of silver and gold coins. Now, the mint is working on its second series of Lunar-themed coins. Today, the 2016 Proof Colorized Australian Lunar Monkey 1/10 oz Gold Coin is available from Provident Metals.
Since the Lunar Series I coins were so popular, the Perth Mint decided to increase the options available in the Lunar Series II coins. While there are still the ever-common gold and silver bullion versions of these beautiful coins, you can also find proof versions and limited-edition colorized proof coins struck in each new version of the coins in the lunar series.
On the obverse of each coin, you will see the image of Queen Elizabeth II as created by Ian Rank-Broadley. While the reverse image features color, the obverse side of the coin is left alone.
The reverse image is that of a monkey in full color. The monkey sits on the branch of a tree and stares at a peach dangling from a higher branch. While the background of the coin is gold, the monkey is shown in natural hues to add a contract between the gold background. The silver version of this coin features a completely different monkey design.
The Perth Mint is the oldest operating minting facility in the country of Australia. It was founded in 1898 as the final of three British Royal Mint facilities in the country.
