This cute baby monkey coin celebrates the Year of the Monkey. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar monkey include 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, and 2016. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, quick-witted, optimistic, ambitious, and adventurous.
The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of a baby monkey sitting on a tree limb holding a present. The Chinese character for ‘monkey’, the inscription ‘Year of the Monkey’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2016 year-date are also incorporated into the design.
