  • Description:

    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. Those born under the Year of the Monkey tend to be incredibly smart, quick-witted, and flexible. Some of their flaws are jealousy, tendency to look down on others, and have an uncontrollable temper. The Australian Lunar Series II succeeds the Australian Lunar Series I collection. which began in 1996. The ancient Chinese zodiac calendar, that has been a refuge of fortune-telling for many, inspired the Perth Mint to produce a coin series that reflects the age-old tradition. The Perth Mint also didn't want to limit its buyers to just one size coin so the Australian Lunar Series II is offered in an array of sizes for any budget and any investment goal. Perfect for gift-giving, the Australian Lunar Series II 1/20 ounce coins allows everyone to enjoy their unique beauty.

    Being the the tenth installment to the series, the Australian Lunar Series II 2016 1/20 ounce Gold Monkey is guaranteed, by the oldest working mint in Australia, to be .9999 pure gold. Like all the other coins minted from this record-breaking series, the 2016 1/4 ounce Monkey is in brilliant uncirculated condition and is protected by a mint-sealed capsule. 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 obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as does all the other coins minted in the Commonwealth of Nations. Besides the regal depiction of the Queen, the coin's monetary value, gold weight and purity are also etched into the obverse.
