Protect your Silver coin in style by adding an attractive display box to your order.

This Year of the Monkey coin would make a great addition to any lunar collection. Add this spectacular 2016 1 oz Silver Year of the Monkey coin to your cart today!

The Perth Lunar Series 1 concluded in 2007, and in 2008 began the Lunar Series 2 that is now in production. These releases have been tremendously popular worldwide, with each year selling out quickly as investors and collectors claim the coins of all sizes. As each 1 oz Silver bullion coin in Series 2 has been limited to only 300,000 coins worldwide, the prolonged popularity is ensured by the high level of collectibility as well as the stellar designs from the reputable Perth Mint.

As well as appealing to investors, these superb releases are perfect for people born in the Year of the Monkey – 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.

Expand your Silver Lunar Monkey coin collection with 2016 coins featuring monkey privy marks.

Silver Lunar Monkey coin collectors can broaden their collection by browsing coins from world mints that feature monkey privy marks. In addition to their Australian Lunar coins, the Perth Mint’s 2016 Silver Kookaburra Monkey privy coins feature a small monkey image honoring the Year of the Monkey. Similarly, the Silver Lunar coins from the Royal Canadian Mint are not the only coins that feature monkeys, as their Silver Maple Leaf Monkey privy coins also showcase the primates. The Royal Mint’s 2016 Lunar coins also have a companion coin in the 2016 Gold Britannia coins that feature a Year of the Monkey privy.

Select the Silver Lunar Monkey coin and build a collection of coins featuring animal families.

The Silver Lunar Monkey coin features an adult and a child monkey, a family theme that is evident across several different coin series. Other Silver Australian Lunar coins, such as the coins commemorating the Year of Goat, Year of the Rabbit and Year of the Ox feature families of animals as well. Similar to these Silver Lunar coins, a family motif is commonly featured on the Somalia Silver Elephant series and the Gold Isle of Man Cat Series, showing different breeds of these animals and their young. In addition to these 2016 Lunar coins, Tokelau Gold Lunar Monkey Family coins offer another image of a monkey family and another option when building an animal family-themed coin collection.

I'm stoked ok this coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Not enough people realize what a super gift a silver coin is. This is especially true for the lunar series if you match the person's birth year. I gave one to someone born in 2004 and it was a huge hit. It will be charished and remembered long after a game or an article of clothing would have been history.

  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Lunar Monkey

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Call me crazy, but the animals represented in the Chinese calendar are based on an individual's year of birth. So where did the Perth Mint get the Lunar Series title? Who cares? This is a beautiful coin and includes Chinese symbolism like the peach.
