The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 5oz 999 SILVER 2016 8 DOLLARS

The reverse design by engraver Ing Ing Jong shows an adult and baby monkey sitting in a peach tree. The baby is looking at a peach, which Chinese people believe represents immortality. The engraver's initials IJ are set in the branch to the right of the coin. The reverse bears the Perth Mint mint mark, P, and the Chinese symbol and legend Year of the Monkey.
