2016 is the Year of the Monkey on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, and the Highland Mint is continuing the production of its popular Lunar Series silver rounds with an all-new design to celebrate the changing years.
Lunar Series coins are available from various mints around the globe, and are among the most popular precious metal products available right now. However, those coins often come with higher premiums above the spot price of silver. As such, these 2016 1 oz Highland Mint Monkey Silver Rounds make a great alternative for investors and collectors looking for affordable silver products.
On the obverse face of the coin you’ll find the image of two monkeys in a peach tree. The duo focus their gaze on a single peach. The imagery is meant to symbolize longevity and immortality. Engravings include “Year of the Monkey” above, and the Chinese symbol for monkey below.
The reverse face of the coin has the symbol for silver in the center, as found on the periodic table of elements. The square reads “silver” and “Ag.” Around the outer edges are engravings of “1 Troy Ounce,” “.999,” “Fine Silver,” and “Made in the U.S.A.”
Each of these affordable Lunar Series silver rounds comes from the Highland Mint. A privately owned mint that opened in the 1980s, Highland operates a 40,000-square-foot facility in Melbourne, Florida, and its other products include sports memorabilia and medallions struck for collectors.
