2016 British Year of the Monkey One Ounce Silver Coin Obverse
The UK's Royal Mint began their series of lunar calendar coins in 2014, with the Year of the Horse. The Year of the Monkey is the third coin in the series, and the ninth in the lunar cycle.
We received our first delivery on 1st October, 2015.
The Perth Mint already have a lunar coin series which is incredibly popular.
The bullion silver coins have a limited mintage figure of 138,888 coins. This number was chosen as the number 8 is thought to be particularly lucky in Chinese culture.
The Royal Mint sold out of their trade allocation before the coins were even released. This means that once we have sold out of our supply we are unable to source any more.
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.
We are not currently stocking the proof version. If we get a large volume of enquiries regarding it, we may look into stocking some.
