Add striking Gold Bullion to your personal investment porfolio and remember the Year of the Monkey with this 2016 Perth Mint Year of the Monkey 1 oz Gold Coin. The Perth Mint creates each gold coin with one troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. This one oz gold coin is an extension of the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II.
The reverse of this 1 oz gold coin features an adult monkey peering back over its shoulder as it sits in a peach tree – the peach tree signifies a prolonged, wholesome life in the Chinese culture. This intricate design also depicts a Chinese character for “monkey” and the inscription “Year of the Monkey.”
People born during the Year of the Monkey are said to have certain personality traits that are connected with the monkey (each year and animal is different). The attributes of the monkey that people born in this year demonstrate are optimism, intelligence, adventure, wit and ambition. The monkey is the ninth of twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac calendar. The Year of the Monkey officially begins Feb. 8, 2016.
A new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of this gold coin as well as the inscriptions of “AUSTRALIA,” “2016” and the coin’s weight, metal purity and legal tender value. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth became the longest reigning Monarch of the Common Wealth on September 9, 2015, surpassing her great-great grandmother.
All the Perth Mint Gold Coins are backed by the Australian government and produced by a trusted Sovereign Mint, which guarantees the coin’s weight and metal purity. Although it has legal tender value, its actual worth is in its gold content.
Each gold monkey coin will ship in Brilliant Uncirculated condition in a mint issued plastic capsule. Provident Metals does not selectively ship or retain gold coins based on condition; each coin ships in the same condition Provident Metals receives it.
