Year of the Monkey

The Year of the Monkey officially starts on February 8th, 2016. It is the Chinese year 4714. The monkey is the 9th animal in the lunar cycle.

People born in the Year of the Monkey are said to be intelligent, ambitious and adventurous. They can however have a mischievous side.

Perth Mint 2016 Bullion Coin Program

 

Design

The coin’s reverse shows an adult monkey sitting on a branch of a peach tree, which is symbolic of longevity and immortality. The Chinese character for ‘monkey’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Monkey’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Even though a fifth portrait was of the Queen was unveiled in 2015, the coins still feature the fourth portrait, so as to keep them the same as other coins in the series.

Mintage Figures

The one ounce coins have a mintage figure of just 30,000 coins. The Perth Mint will stop producing the 1oz coins either when the mintage is fully sold at the end of the year, whichever comes first. We expect the 1oz size to be incredibly popular, as always.

The 1kg, 10oz, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, and 1/20oz coins coins will be produced on a "mint-to-order" basis, meaning there is no limit to the amount that will be produced. Once production closes at the end of 2016, the Perth Mint will announce each of the different sizes official mintage figures.

Lunar Coin Brief History

The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle. Each year is associated with a different animal. Australia's Perth Mint started issuing series of Chinese Lunar Calendar Coin, both in gold and silver, in 1996, with the Year of the Rat. The 12 year cycle of this first series ran from 1996 to 2007 inclusive, and all designs proved to be very popular. In fact, we rarely manage to buy any of the older years, which tend to be very hard to source.

The second series has proved even more popular than the first, with the one ounce coins being massively oversubscribed at The Mint. We recommend that you buy this year's coins while we still have them available.
