    The latest coins from the Perth Mints Lunar Series II honor the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The 12-year cycle of the calendar offers a different animal as the representative of individuals born under each sign. Those born in the year of the monkey include individuals born in 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, and so on.

    In the Chinese language, Shengxiao is the name of the Zodiac, which translates literally as birth likeness. Those born under the year of the monkey are said to be intelligent, quick-witted, optimistic, and ambitious.

    On the reverse side is the Year of the Monkey design. In the middle of the coin is the image of a pair of monkeys, one adult and one child. The pair are seated in a peach tree, with the younger monkey holding a peach in its palm. The Chinese character for monkey, P mint mark, and phrase Year of the Monkey are all engraved on this side.

    The obverse features the common image used on all Perth Mint coins. Ian Rank-Broadleys fourth-generation portrait of Englands Queen Elizabeth II is featured in the middle, with engravings of Elizabeth II, Australia, and the face value of the coin surrounding her image.

    The Perth Mint is the nations oldest operating facility. Though not associated with the Royal Australian Mint, all of its coins are considered legal tender under the Currency Act of 1965.

    When will I receive my order?+

    When you will receive your order depends primarily on three factors

    1. When we receive your payment (checks and wires must be initiated/sent by you).
      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.
      • UPS 3-Day Air is the fastest and most reliable method of shipping. These are usually delivered in 1-3 business days once in transit.
      • USPS is less consistent in both transit time and tracking accuracy.

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.
