With contemporary designs celebrating the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, The Shengxiào Collection celebrates the 12-year Lunar calendar and its traditions in a unique fusion of Chinese and British heritage. Following the success of the coins struck in the years of the Horse and the Sheep, this coin features the Monkey and is presented in strictly limited mintages.
This year’s coin is once more designed by British-Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho, whose cultural heritage makes her the ideal artist to convey the meeting of east and west. Wuon-Gean has created a beautiful and dynamic design that captures the energy and agility of the intelligent monkey. With work in collections at the Tate and the Victoria and Albert Museum, this is Wuon-Gean’s third commission for The Royal Mint.

The British Mint always produced Coins with such a lovely finish. I would have liked to have seen more detail on the Monkeys face, but the overall design of Her jumping from the tree is cute. Hope to get more!

I received this coin today and was a little disappointed. It has some minor scratches on it. It isn't in the best shape like the other coins I received today. It is a very nice coin and design. I also got coins from the same mint and they are in great shape, it was just this Monkey one.
