The Perth Mint issued the Australian Gold Lunar Monkey coins in proof with just three weights in 2016. The coins in the series were available in 1 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold, making these 1 oz gold coins the largest weight available in the proof gold coin series. In addition to being available individually, the proof gold coins were also offered in a three-coin set.
All of these 2016 PRoof Australian Gold Lunar Monkey Coins in this product listing are available to you with a perfect certification from the PCGS. A PR70 coin has full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind present on the design elements or background fields of the coin.
The additional DCAM designation is for proof coins only and stands for deep-cameo. Such a coin exhibits strong, frosted design elements over deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The combined visual elements create a strong contrast between the two.
On the obverse side of the 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Gold Lunar Monkey Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fifth-generation effigy to feature on Australian coins and was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. Originally used by the Royal Mint of England from 1998 to 2015, the image was also featured on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018.
The reverse face of 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Gold Lunar Monkey Coins includes the depiction of a single monkey sitting on the branch of a peach tree. The inclusion of the peach tree in the design is symbolic of longevity and immortality. You will find the P mint mark of the Perth Mint engraved on this face of the coin.
