Details & Specifications

The 2016 1 oz Perth Mint Silver Monkey arrives in style! What better time to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year than on the eve of the Year of the Monkey? Known for being clever, agile, and sociable, those born under the sign of the Monkey have found the perfect keepsake to honor their Chinese zodiac animal. Even for those not born in the Year of the Monkey, these .999 fine silver coins are a great way to honor the Lunar tradition with precious metal. Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver. These 2016 1 oz Silver Year of the Monkeys are legal tender coins with a face value of 1 Dollar and are limited to a worldwide mintage of only 300,000 coins!

The reverse design shows two monkeys relaxing on a sturdy tree branch. The smaller of the two monkeys holds a peach in its hand inquisitively while the adult monkey looks on. The fur on both monkeys is shown in detail, as are the veins on the tree branch and the fruits that it bears. The Chinese character for “Monkey” is placed in the field between the pair of primates, while the “P” mintmark for Perth is placed against the left rim. The legend “Year of the Monkey” is found along the bottom rim.

The obverse design uses the Ian Rank-Broadley design of Queen Elizabeth II wearing her royal tiara. Her Majesty's name is found inscribed against the rim to the top-left, followed by “AUSTRALIA,” the issuing country, along the top-right rim. The bottom half of the rim is filled by the inscriptions “1 OZ 999 SILVER,” the year-date “2016,” and the denomination “1 DOLLAR.” The coin's edge is reeded.

The Perth Mint's Lunar series is now in its second cycle (Lunar Series II), but this cultural theme has only gained in popularity, helping the mint expand its customer base far beyond the shores of Australia. In addition to their 99.9% pure silver content, these coins also appeal to collectors for their limited mintage of 300,000. Add a 2016 1 oz Silver Year of the Monkey (Australia Perth Mint) to your collection today!
