1/2 oz 2016 Perth Mint Lunar Year of the Monkey Colourized Silver Coin
This bullion coin has been beautifully enhanced with enamel colouring on both monkeys as well as the peaches.
For 2016, the Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrated the Year of the Monkey, the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
These superb quality releases are perfect for people born in "monkey" years - 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and in 2016 - who are regarded as clever, intelligent, flexible, quick-witted and versatile. 優しさや誠実さといった性格特性が永遠の愛の生活をもたらしてくれます。
各コインの裏面には、桃の木に座って赤ちゃんが桃を握っているサルの親子を描いています。 桃の木は中国の芸術では不死の象徴です。 The Chinese character for "monkey" and the inscription "Year of the Monkey" also appear in the design along with The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark, the year and weight. As well as appealing to silver coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar monkey.
In multiples of 20, this coin will come in a mint roll. In multiples of 100, these coins will ship in a Perth Mint box.
