The 2016 Year of the Monkey gold coin is part of the Perth Mint’s Australian Lunar Series II collection.
Obverse: The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the denomination, the year of mintage, weight and purity of the coin, and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.
Reverse: The reverse displays a goat standing on rocks. Inscribed to the left is the Chinese character for “monkey”, and the letter “P” which stands for Perth Mint. Below the animal is the text “Year of the Monkey”.
Purity: The 2016 Australian Lunar Year of the Monkey coin contains 99.99% pure gold. This means that the coin is exclusively made of pure gold and is free of metallic impurities.
Packaging: Each coin is individually packaged in a hard plastic capsule at the Perth Mint. For bulk purchases, multiples of 20 are available in original factory packaging.
