2016 Australian Silver Monkey coins are already unique in that they have a different design from their gold counterparts from the Perth Mint. Now, the 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Monkey is available with a gilded finish on the reverse face. The image of the monkeys used on the 2016 coin in this listing features a layer of 24-karat gold.
Each of the Year of the Monkey coins available to you right now is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear on the surface. However, you may notice breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the striking process.
On the reverse face of the coin is the 2016 Year of the Monkey design featured on all silver coins in this production year. The two monkeys, one adult and one youth, are featured sitting in a tree. The younger of the pair hands a peach to the adult. The gilded 24-karat gold finish on this coin is used only on the monkeys.
The obverse face of the coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this fourth-generation image of Her Majesty is slowly being replaced on commonwealth coins by a new image, but the Perth Mint continues with this depiction for all Lunar Series II coins.
