The upcoming year in the Chinese Lunar Calendar is the Year of the Monkey. The 12-year cycle of the Zodiac brings different birth characteristics to people depending upon the animal whose sign they are born under. The Year of the Monkey covers those born in 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, and so on.
If you were born under the sign of the monkey, you may be a confident, outgoing, and quick-witted individual. However, every animal’s sign has positives and negatives. In some people, these character traits manifest as egotism, overconfidence, boorishness, and practical jokes that hurt the feelings of others.
On the obverse is the all-new Year of the Monkey design. A lone adult monkey is featured walking along a tree branch in front of the massive trunk of a tree. Inset into the trunk is the Chinese symbol for monkey.
The reverse side depicts the opposite scene of that found on the obverse. This time, all you can see is the tree trunk, with only the monkey’s head and tail sticking out from the obverse viewing angle. The trunk of the tree bears the engravings of the PAMP Suisse corporate logo, the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity, and the serial number of the bar. An assayer’s mark is included on this side as well.
PAMP Suisse was founded in 1977 in Ticino, Switzerland as an independent refinery. Today, it is part of the global MKS Group which deals in precious metals and financial services on an international scale.
