Among the most popular gold bar weights in the world is the 1 oz. bullion bar. The 1 oz. weight is preferred by many investors because it is large enough to represent a significant investment in precious metals, while also remaining small enough to move with ease and come with an affordable premium over the spot price of gold. Right now, the 1 oz PAMP Suisse Gold Lunar Monkey Bar is one of the most popular in the world, and is available from Silver.com.

The Chinese Zodiac is one of the most popular designs found on gold and silver bars, coins, and rounds at this moment in time. Mints and refineries everywhere have created unique designs for each of the 12 animals in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, and as the Year of the Monkey approaches, new designs on the horizon.
Zodiac translates from Mandarin as “birth likeness,” which explains the fact that people are said to share personality traits with the creature whose sign they are born under. Those born in the Year of the Monkey are said to be quick-witted, intelligent, and outgoing, but their mischievous nature can also lead to practical jokes that hurt feelings.
On the obverse face of the bar you’ll find the Year of the Monkey design from PAMP Suisse. In keeping with the Lunar Series design motif, a large tree trunk is featured in the center of the design, with a lone monkey depicted climbing a branch in front of the trunk.
The reverse side features the opposite image from the obverse. The backside of the trunk is visible, with only the monkey’s head and tail sticking out on either side. Engravings on this side include the PAMP Suisse corporate logo, the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity, an individual serial number, and the mark of an independent assayer.
