2016 is the Year of the Monkey, and PAMP Suisse is celebrating with an all-new design in its Lunar Series of gold bars. The Year of the Monkey covers those born in 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, and so on.
Those born under the sign of the monkey are said to be curious, smart, and optimistic, but also arrogant, egotistical, and likely to cause strife among those they know. The monkey is the 9th animal in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac, a position it earned (according to Chinese lore) by arriving 9th to the meeting with the Jade Emperor.
All PAMP Suisse Lunar Series bars feature opposite obverse-reverse design features. The obverse design on this 5 Gram PAMP Suisse Gold Lunar Monkey Bar features a lone monkey climbing along a tree branch, with the trunk of a massive tree visible in the center of the design.
On the reverse side of the bar, you can see that same tree from behind. The only visible features of the monkey are its head and tail as it wraps around the tree. Engravings on this side include the corporate logo, the bar’s weight, purity, and metal content, and the individual serial number.
All PAMP Suisse products in this listing ship with an assay card that allows you to authenticate the bar’s weight and purity. PAMP Suisse is part of the global MKS Group, a Geneva-based firm with international ties to precious metals and financial services.
