2016 Lunar Year Of The Monkey Tenth Ounce Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

UKM16GT 2016 Lunar Year Of The Monkey Tenth Ounce Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Boxed
(VAT Exempt)
Celebrate the Year of the Monkey with this 2016 BU gold 1/10 ounce coin from the Royal Mint. Struck in 0.9999 fine gold (24 carat) and housed in the original presentation box, this edition is the third release in the Mint's Shēngxiào series, which depicts the animals in the 12-year Chinese zodiac. Although this is the third coin in the Shengxiao collection, the monkey is actually the ninth animal in the zodiac. Those born in the Year of the Monkey are said to be mischievous, clever and crafty; a concoction of characteristics which can make them a bit naughty! For this Royal Mint lunar coin, British-Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho has depicted a pair of monkeys jumping on and off a tree branch on the reverse. Sharp eyed observers will be able to spot the Chinese character '猴' underneath the monkey in the foreground. The fifth official UK coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark and the face value of Ten Pounds / £10 can be seen on the obverse. These tenth ounce UK coins are unique to the Year of the Monkey collection in that they're the only gold coin struck to a brilliant uncirculated finish. During production, they're stuck twice to give a finer finish, which is superior to bullion coins and the ordinary coins found in your change. Specifications are a total weight of 3.13 grams and a diameter of 16.50 millimetres. Your limited edition collectable is issued in the original Royal Mint presentation box with a certificate of authenticity. with the added bonus of delivery being free of charge.
