  • Description:

    Although a collector or an investor might be intrigued by the Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series II, they might not be interested in the limitation of only one ounce coins. The Perth Mint proudly offers their 12-coin series in different coin sizes, allowing collectors and investors to have more control over their investment. Following the ancient Chinese zodiac calendar, the Perth Mint releases the ninth installment to the Australian Lunar Series II. The Lunar Series II is a follow-up series from Lunar Series I, that was in production from 1996-2007. This ancient calendar is mainly used for fortune-telling and depending on the year you were born under, you can learn more about your personality.

    The Australian Lunar Silver 1/2 oz Silver Series II 2016 Monkey offers collectors the ability in choosing a size smaller than the usual one ounce for silver bullion coins. This coin is guaranteed to contain .999 pure silver and exhibits the Perth Mint's famous finish combo of brilliant uncirculated with proof-like features. The reverse pictures a mom and baby monkey, enjoying a fresh peach while dangling their feet from its limber branches.The peach tree is significant here because it represents longevity and immortality. "Year of the Monkey," and the Chinese symbol are also etched on the reverse to complete the significance. The obverse contains famous sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley's masterpiece of Queen Elizabeth II, a portrait that accentuates the Queen's beautiful mature features. The Queen is accompanied by the silver purity and legal tender value as well. The monkey is respected and esteemed as the smartest animal, in Chinese culture, allowing those born under its year to breathe a little easier. Monkeys represent good fortune and have been drawn on houses due to their meaning. Those born under the year of the monkey are active, sport loving people, who are great problem solvers.
