Buy 2016 Lunar Year of the Monkey 1 oz Silver Coins from Provident Metals. Celebrating the Chinese zodiac, the British Royal Mint has released its third design in its Shengxio Collection. Each coin was struck with one troy ounce of .999 fine silver and is eligible for placement into precious metal IRAs. Only 138,888 Year of the Monkey Silver Coins were minted worldwide.

The reverse pays tribute to the monkey, the ninth animal in the zodiac. The design by Wuon-Gean Ho, a British-Chinese artist, depicts a monkey leaping from a tree with its arms outspread. Another monkey can be seen swinging in the distance amid the leaves hanging from the long, slim tree. “YEAR OF THE MONKEY,” “1 OZ FINE SILVER 999” and “2016” are inscribed. A Chinese symbol for “monkey” is stamped beneath the primate.

People born in 1920 and every 12th year after are thought to be optimistic, intelligent, quick-witted and fearless. Individuals that are born during the year of the monkey do well in banking, science, film, and engineering careers.

A profile of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse of this round. The elegant, right-facing portrait is the fifth image of Her Majesty to be displayed on circulating coinage. Inscriptions read “2 POUNDS, “ELIZABETH II” and “D.G. REG. F.D.”

The 2016 1 oz Silver Monkey follows the two previous releases in the Royal Mint’s collection: the 2014 Lunar Year of the Horse and the 2015 Lunar Year of the Sheep. Each design in the series is legal tender and guaranteed .999 pure, as the Royal Mint is ISO9001 accredited – in fact, the Sovereign Mint was the world’s first to be certified ISO 9001 in 1991.

Lunar Silver Monkeys are an ideal addition to any Silver Bullion holdings, whether you’re an investor or collector. These remarkable coins are the latest Royal Mint pieces available at Provident Metals.

Remember to protect your investment with the a 39mm Air-Tite Plastic Capsule. And if you enjoy this round, be sure to check out the 2016 Year of the Monkey Gold Coin from the British Royal Mint.
