There are few coin programs in the world more popular than the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II coins. Building upon the success of its original Lunar Series coins, the Perth Mint has released newly designed lunar coins annually since 2008. Perth Mint celebrates the Year of the Monkey with the 2016 ½ oz Silver Australian Monkey Coins, available now on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Each coin ships in an individual acrylic mint capsule to protect its condition; orders of 100 coins ship in mint boxes.
  • Consists of one-half troy ounce of .999 pure silver.
  • Issued a face value of $.50 (AUD) by the Australian government.
  • Features an all-new 2016 design, honoring the Year of the Monkey.
  • Part of the Lunar Series II program. View annual Perth Silver Lunar Series II mintages.
  • Ships in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Silver Australian Monkey Coins are part of the larger Lunar Series II coin program. Launched in 2008, these coins are the 9th in the series, indicative of the monkey’s place as the 9th animal in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac.

The Silver Australian Monkey is available in a total of seven different weights. These 2016 ½ oz Silver Australian Monkey coins are the smallest in the series, with the 10 Kilo representing the largest available weight in the series. Only the 10 Kilo coin and 1 oz. coin have mintage limits from Perth Mint, while the rest will be struck to meet demand from investors and collectors.

On the reverse side of each coin is the Year of the Monkey design for 2016. In the image, an adult monkey and young monkey are featured sitting in a peach tree, with the younger holding a peach in its palm. Engravings include the Chinese symbol for monkey above and the phrase “Year of the Monkey” below.

The obverse side of the coin features the fourth-generation right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Although a new design was revealed for a fifth-generation image of the Queen for currency from the Royal Mint, the Perth Mint is sticking with Ian Rank-Broadley’s 1998 design to provide continuity to Lunar Series obverse designs.

Perth Mint is located in the state of Western Australia, and is controlled by the state government. The facility is not associated with the federal Royal Australian Mint, but its currency is considered legal tender under the Currency Act of 1965.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
