Product Details

APMEX has created a process called MintDirect® to ensure these 2016 1 oz Lunar Monkeys come directly from sealed British Royal Mint boxes. This process guarantees these .999 fine Silver coins have not been searched or sorted since being minted.


Coin Highlights:
  • Each coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Limited mintage of 138,888 coins.
  • This MintDirect® tube contains 25 coins for a total of 25 oz Silver. Multiples of 20 tubes are packaged in “Monster Boxes.”
  • Obverse: Fifth effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the face value of 2 pounds.
  • Reverse: Features a rhesus monkey swinging through the trees, along with the Inscription "Year of the Monkey," and the weight, purity and year.
  • Official legal tender backed by British government.

To ensure our customers receive only coins that have remained unopened from the British Royal Mint, APMEX has created a process to guarantee these coins are direct from mint-sealed boxes. This process called MintDirect® is your guarantee that these coins remain packaged in tubes directly from the Royal Mint.

APMEX uses a special machine for this sealing process to ensure the products you receive are sealed completely, once they are removed directly from the mint boxes. The mint tubes are placed on the conveyor leading into the machine, and the sealing process seals both ends of each tube with tamper-evident packaging. If this tube has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the tube is removed from the machine and checked to ensure the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished tube of MintDirect® 2016 1 oz Silver Lunar Monkey coins.

Once completed, the MintDirect® tubes are stored in the vault until they are ordered by our customers. By using this process, APMEX can guarantee the coins you receive are in exactly the same condition and packaging as they were when they left the British Royal Mint.

The MintDirect® process provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. Click for more details

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.
