Description

This limited mintage, unique bullion release features a full colour design of the mythical Monkey King!

For 2016, the Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Gold Coins celebrated the Year of the Monkey, the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

These superb quality releases are perfect for people born in "monkey" years - 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and in 2016 - who are regarded as clever, intelligent, flexible, quick-witted and versatile. Personality traits like gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life.

The reverse of each coin depicts the Monkey King and his battle staff. Mountain tops are visible in the foreground and background. The Chinese character for "monkey" and the inscription "Year of the Monkey" also appear in the design along with The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark, the year and weight. As well as appealing to gold coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar monkey.
