Royal Mint Lunar Coins

Possibly influenced by the success of the Perth Mint's lunar series, the Royal Mint started producing their own lunar coins in 2014, with the Year of the Horse. Available in both gold and silver versions, the coins have proved to be a quite popular with both investors and collectors.

As British legal tender, these coins have the added bonus of being CGT Free.

Limited Mintage

The coins have a limited mintage of 8,888. The number 8 is considered to be lucky in Chinese culture.

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.


The reverse of the coin was designed by the British artist, Wuon-Gean Ho, who has designed all coins in the series to date.

Taking inspiration from her Chinese and British descent, the coin features a playful monkey on the reverse. It is meant to symbolise the freedom, mischief and adventure of monkeys.

The obverse shows the Jody Clark fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the first coin in the series to have the new portrait.

Proof Version

We are not currently stocking the proof version. If we get a large volume of enquiries regarding it, we may look into stocking some.


The coins are supplied to us in tubes of 10 and unless ordered in multiples of 10, will not be sent in them. We can provide capsules for the coins at 50p each.
