2016 1 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Monkey Coin .9999 Fine BU - Royal Australian Mint


In celebration of the 2016 Chinese New Year, the illustrious Royal Australian Mint has released the 'Year of the Monkey' gold coin series. These charming and lavishly crafted coins have been struck in 99.99% fine gold.

The Royal Australian Mint incorporated remarkable detail in this stunning gold coin, appealing to both investors and collectors alike for its high purity and sheer elegance. The 2016 Lunar Year of the Monkey Gold Series is the perfect gift for anyone born in the year of the monkey. Those born in the Year of the Monkey are described as naturally quick-witted and are problem solvers much like the clever animal.

The Chinese Zodiac or Shēngxiào is a tradition based on a 12-year mathematical cycle, with each year being represented by an animal and their reputed attributes. Customarily these zodiac creatures were utilized to date the years.

Occupying the 9th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Monkey possesses characteristics such as curiosity, mischievousness, and cleverness. Perpetually fun loving, Monkeys are also considered inherently intellectual and creative. Monkeys are quite resourceful and thrive on being challenged which is a testament to their ingenuity. The Year of the Monkey is said to represent a year of great tranquility and financial success.

Bullion Exchanges is pleased to carry these exquisite gold coins, which are composed of 1 oz of 99.99% fine gold. The reverse side features a handsomely intricate rendering of a skillful monkey moving along branches of a blooming tree and the Chinese Character '猴', which transcribes as “monkey” in English. The highest point of the reverse side features the inscription “2016” while the base features the coin’s metal weight and fineness, “1 oz .9999 Au”. The obverse side features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II”, “Australia”, and the face value of the coin. The obverse side is encircled by portrayals of the 12 signs and moon phases of the Chinese Zodiac.

This playful animal is not only loved around the world, but the Chinese Zodiac represents a tradition which is still popular adding to this unique coins appeal. Add a 1 oz 2016 Year of the Monkey Gold Coin to your cart today.
