The New Zealand Mint has been producing Lunar Series coins since 2012. While the primary focus of production is on bullion and proof versions of the coin, that same year the mint began introducing an entirely unique product for collectors.

The 2016 5 oz Silver New Zealand Mother of Pearl Monkey coin combines the beauty of mother of pearl in a coin with a design that focuses on the latest animal represented in the Chinese lunar calendar.

On the obverse side of the coin is the common image used on all New Zealand Mint products, that of Queen Elizabeth II. Featured in right-profile relief and created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, Her Majesty’s effigy is surrounded by engravings that include her name, the nation of issue, and the year of issue.

The reverse features a brilliant mother of pearl finish at the core of the coin, giving the Year of the Monkey design a striking finish. The image created for the Year of the Monkey includes a family of three monkeys, with a mom, dad, and young monkey featured in the design. Engravings read “Year of the Monkey” and “25 Dollars.”

The New Zealand Mint is a privately-owned entity operating in the capital of Auckland. The mint is not affiliated with the central government, which receives all of its coinage and currency from the Royal Canadian Mint and Royal Mint.

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.
