Proof coins are immensely popular among collectors because of their unique finish and visual appeal. Perth Mint products already enjoy demand from around the globe, but few products from the mint are as sought after as its popular Lunar Series II coins. Right now, JM Bullion offers the stunning 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Monkey Coin in a high-relief strike.
- Mintage limited to a maximum of 7,500 coins!
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.

- Struck in high-relief proof.

The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II coins are among the most popular in the world right now. Investors and collectors alike covet the Lunar Series coins for their new design each year, and the proof versions have the added value of limited availability.
The new 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Monkey High-Relief coin is now available through JM Bullion with special presentation packaging to help you display the visual brilliance of this coin. Struck multiple times under high pressure, these coins have a distinct contrast between the design set and the background field.
On the reverse is the 2016 Year of the Monkey design. Created by Ing Ing Jong, the design features two monkeys (one adult and one youth) sitting in a peach tree. The younger monkey holds out a peach in its hand for the older monkey. Engravings include the phrase “Year of the Monkey,” the Chinese symbol for monkey, and the “P” mint mark from the Perth Mint.
The obverse side features Ian Rank-Broadley’s right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy has been in use on Commonwealth coins in the United Kingdom and Australia since 1998 in this version. Engravings include her name, the nation of issue, face value, and year of issue for the coin.
Perth Mint coins are considered legal tender in Australia, despite the fact that the mint is a state-owned entity of the government of Western Australia and is not affiliated with the Royal Australian Mint.
