As the Chinese Lunar Calendar ushers in the Year of the Monkey, the Mint’s tetra-decagon lunar program celebrates its fifth annual release.
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a twelve-year cycle, with each year represented by an animal with its own distinct personality.
People born in each lunar year are believed to possess that animal’s qualities, using its traits to achieve success and happiness throughout life.
On 8 February 2016, the Chinese Lunar Calendar will be welcoming the Year of the Monkey. Those born under this sign can be cheeky and eccentric, they are also fun-loving, curious, intelligent and passionate. With an understanding nature and a sympathetic ear, they are ideal companions at times of fun, times of sorrow and times of confusion.
Chinese New Year celebrations are colourful reminders of how cherished coins are. They are traditional gifts at these events, and are beloved mementos of the festivities.
