    The newest installment for the 12-coin series, the Australian Perth Mint Series II Lunar Gold One Ounce 2016 Monkey is ready to be added to your collection! With a competitively low mintage of just 30,000 coins, the oldest mint in Australia impresses collectors and investors worldwide with this incredibly detailed coin! The Lunar Series II is a follow-up series from Lunar Series I, that was in production from 1996-2007. The Perth Mint honors the Chinese zodiac calendar by minting a coin representative of that animal's year, in gold and silver. Compared to its sister series, the Gold Lunar Series coin contain very low mintages, barely lasting in any inventory.

    Chinese tradition looks upon the monkey with favor and delight. Often because of its humanly traits, the monkey is respected and esteemed as the smartest animal. To this day, pictures of the monkey are painted on walls and doors of businesses to bring good fortune. Those born under the year of the monkey are active, sport loving people, who are great problem solvers. They are also energetic, flexible, and are selfless when it comes to helping others before themselves. The obverse displays famous sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley's masterpiece of Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the gold purity and value but the reverse is really what collectors anxiously wait for. Intricately detailed, the reverse reveals a lone monkey sitting on a branch of a peach tree. With one peach delicately dangling from its grasp, the peach tree also represents longevity and immortality. "Year of the Monkey," and the Chinese symbol are also etched on the reverse to complete the significance. The Australian Perth Mint Series II Lunar Gold One Ounce 2016 Monkey is the perfect way to start a new year, with well-wishes of long-life!
