Description:

This unique set features the 2016 Year of the Monkey designs with each of the four coin designs forming a linked image.

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.

Each of the four coins is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

The reverse of each coin celebrates the 2016 Year of the Monkey with a design to showcase one of four different coloured monkeys. The Chinese character for ‘monkey’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark are also included in the design.

Each coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Cook Islands and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the four-coin set is housed in a contemporary black framed clear display case, allowing you to see both the reverse and obverse of each coin, and is packaged in an illustrated shipper.
