The Zodiac contains 12 animals that are associated with the five elemental signs in this world. On the Chinese Lunar Calendar, each animal is assigned a year in a 12-year cycle that begins with the Year of the Rat, and the cycle carries on continuously over time. The Year of the Monkey covers those born in 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, and 2016.
The Gold Australian Monkey coin is already available for purchase in bullion and proof versions, and now the proof versions of the coin have been given a brilliant, colorized finish on the reverse side. These coins are only available in strictly limited mintages, and they sell out fast.
On the reverse side of the 2016 1/10 oz Proof Colorized Gold Australian Monkey is the same image from the bullion and proof versions, but two design fields have added color to give the coin visual appeal. The monkey features natural shades of brown and white, giving it a lifelike appearance. The leaves, branch, and peach featured above it are colorized as well.
The image of Queen Elizabeth II featured on the obverse side has not been altered or colorized in any way. Each of these coins is available in new, Proof condition, meaning there are no visible signs of wear and tear on the products.
