A superb gift or collectable, the coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1 kilo of 99.9% pure silver.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 500 of the 2016 Year of the Monkey 1 Kilo Silver Gemstone Edition Coin.

The reverse of the coin depicts an adult monkey and a baby monkey sitting in a peach tree. The adult monkey has a stunning cognac diamond set in its visible eye. The baby is holding a peach, which is symbolic of longevity and immortality. The Chinese character for ‘monkey’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Monkey’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

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

Each coin is housed in a classic black and red display case and illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
