Product Details


This beautiful and highly collectible typeset contains one of each of the Perth Mint Lunar 1 oz silver coins issued for the Year of the Monkey. Along with the bullion issue there is a gilded coin, a colourized coin and a proof coin.

For 2016, the Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II 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 adult and baby monkeys sitting in a peach tree, with the baby holding a peach. The peach tree is symbolic of immortality in Chinese art. 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 silver coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar monkey.

This four coin set ships in a red and black display case held inside a full colour graphic box with a certificate of authenticity.
