The 1 Kg Perth Mint Australian Silver Monkey 2016 Coin’s Inspiration

This coin was masterminded in an effort to honour the ninth animal of the Zodiac’s 12-year cycle. One side of the coin features the brand new “Year of the Monkey” design featuring an illustration of a full-grown monkey along with a younger monkey. The two are resting in a peach tree. The young monkey is depicted with a peach in the palm of his hand. The coin has several engravings including the “P” mintmark, the Chinese character that represents the word “monkey” and the phrase, “Year of the Monkey”.

The obverse side displays a right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth II. If you aren’t extraordinarily familiar with Australian / New Zealand coin collecting, you might find it interesting to know that her Majesty’s aesthetic is featured on the obverse side of each coin produced at the Perth Mint. These coins also have an inscription of “IRB” below the artwork as artist Ian Rank-Broadley is responsible for the coin’s design. He came up with the coin’s initial artwork back in 1998.
