Delivery Info

Due to the high demand for silver products, the Perth Mint were forced to delay production on the 10oz and 1kg lunar coins on and off for several months so they could concentrate on other sizes. This lead to a sporadic supply. So as not to dissapoint distributors, the Perth Mint allocated a limited amount of the coins to each distributor. Due to the delay and the limited run on the coins, it means the 2016 10oz silver monkeys and the 2016 1kg silver monkeys have some of the lowest mintage figures of the lunar series in recent years.

Released by the Perth Mint on 5th October, 2015, we didn't receive our stock of the coins on Wednesday 6th July, 2016.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Even though a fifth portrait was of the Queen was unveiled in 2015, the coins still feature the fourth portrait as do other coins in the series.

Designed by Ing Ing Jong, the reverse engraving shows an adult and baby monkey sitting in a peach tree. The baby is holding a peach, which is said to represent immortality. The engraver's initials IJ are incuse in the branch to the right of the coin. The reverse features the Chinese symbol and the legend Year of the Monkey with the Perth Mint's mint mark P.
