Silver Lunar Series coins and bars are produced by sovereign and private mints around the globe at high levels right now. The major problem facing the average investor is the cost of these products. If the cost isn’t a deterrent, availability usually becomes as a problem as these coins sell out quickly.
Highland Mint has been producing Lunar Series silver rounds in a one-troy-ounce weight since the Year of the Horse in 2014. These silver rounds are more affordable for the average investor because they are sold for a lower premium over spot silver. This adds to the market for lunar-inspired designs, while opening the market up to more investors looking for quality products.
On the reverse face of the 2016 1 oz Silver Highland Mint Monkey Round is the table of elements symbol for silver. It is featured inside a square as “Silver Ag.” Additional engravings include the round’s purity, weight, metal content, and the phrase “Made in the U.S.A.”
The obverse side of the round bears the unique Year of the Monkey design from the Highland Mint. In the image a pair of monkeys are handling a peach from the branch of a peach tree. The symbolism of monkeys in a peach tree is representative of longevity and immortality.
The Highland Mint is a privately owned facility located in Melbourne, Florida. Founded in 1980, the mint’s primary operations include the production of licensed medallions for the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and certain NCAA schools.
