Details & Specifications

2016 1 Kilo Perth Mint Silver Monkey has arrived! The Chinese Lunar calendar is one of the most popular themes for gifts made of precious metals, and this is true all over the globe. This is why Australia's Perth Mint caters to its Southeast Asian neighbors in the Pacific with its annual Lunar series bullion coins. The series is back this year with the 2016 1 Kilo Silver Year of the Monkey coin! These legal tender coins are designated with a face value of 30 Dollars. Each coin, struck from .999 fine silver, contains a total of 1 kilogram (32.15 troy ounces) of pure silver—making them one of the largest government-issued silver coins on the markets.

The reverse design, created by artist Ing Ing Jong, features a pair of monkeys crouching upon a tree branch together. The smaller of the two holds a peach in its hand while its companion looks on with delight. Somehow, a teaching moment seems to be implied in the body language of the two monkeys. The Chinese character meaning "Monkey" is placed at the top rim, hovering between the two monkeys' heads. The "P" mintmark, reflecting that the coin was struck in Perth, Australia, can be found against the rim to the left. Along the bottom rim, the legend "Year of the Monkey" is inscribed in stylized script.

Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is shown on the obverse. Her Majesty faces right and wears her royal diadem. Rim inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II" and the issuing country "AUSTRALIA" around the top rim, with the technical specifications "1 KG 999 SILVER" placed at the bottom-left of the outer rim. It is followed by the year-date "2016" and the denomination "30 DOLLARS" across the rest of the bottom rim. The coin's edge is reeded.

Few themes have had as much staying power as the Lunar calendar motif. The Perth Mint has run its annual Lunar series of gold and silver coins every year since the late 1990s, and the series is now in its second 12-year cycle. Moreover, these coins are issued in a variety of different sizes in order to match the preferences of any buyer. The 1 kilo size is not only the largest offered in the series, but is also an excellent way to accumulate government-issued silver in bulk amounts with one purchase. Add a full kilogram of .999 fine silver to your holdings with the 2016 1 Kilo Silver Year of the Monkey coin (Australia Perth Mint) while they're still available in stock!
