1oz Silver Coin 2016 Year of the Monkey - Perth Mint


In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’.  The Monkey ranks as the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.  The Monkey is a symbol of health and wealth and those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, quick-witted and adventurous.  People born in the Year of the Monkey are always interested in learning and new experiences. They are ambitious, optimistic and can be seen as impulsive. Monkeys are smart with their money and opportunities, pictures of monkeys are often placed on doors and walls to bring good fortune and wealth.



The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.


Lunar Year coins are produced in a limited mintage each year with a different design each year making them rarer than the Koalas or Kangaroos which have no limit.


Perth Mint coins come encased in a hard clear plastic case to help keep coins in pristine condition. Ainslie Bullion recommends leaving these cases un-tampered for the best preservation of value.


The Perth Mint is Australia’s leading precious metal refiner accredited by the LBMA. Backed by the Western Australian Government, The Perth Mint has produced the official bullion coin program since 1987. The Perth Mint also produces a large range of high quality gold and silver bars. All Perth Mint gold products are LBMA accredited and refined to 99.99% purity (= 24 carat) and all silver products are refined to 99.9% purity. Ainslie Bullion is a Primary Bullion Distributor for Perth Mint.



Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectible” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectible and need special storage. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event.
