Gold Coast Bullion proudly presents the 1oz Lunar Monkey Silver Coin (2016) from the Australian Lunar Series II by the Perth Mint. 

This is the 9th coin in a set of 12.  The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II from the Perth Mint began with the Year of the Mouse (2008), with one coin being released each year.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle.

Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’.  The Monkey ranks as the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.  The Monkey is a symbol of health and wealth and those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, quick-witted and adventurous.  People born in the Year of the Monkey are always interested in learning and new experiences. They are ambitious, optimistic and can be seen as impulsive. Monkeys are smart with their money and opportunities, pictures of monkeys are often placed on doors and walls to bring good fortune and wealth.
