Product Information

 

In 2016, we celebrate the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar monkey include 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and 2016. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, quick-witted, optimistic, ambitious, and adventurous.

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold

Each coin is meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.

2016 Year of the Monkey Design

The reverse of each coin depicts an adult monkey sitting on a branch of a peach tree, which is symbolic of longevity and immortality. The Chinese character for ‘monkey’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Monkey’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 year-date, and the monetary denomination are shown on each coin’s obverse.

Available in 1oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz and a Three-Coin Set

The 2016 gold releases are available as individual 1oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz coins, or in a stunning three-coin set comprising all three issues.

Extremely Limited Issues
