The Royal Mint of the United Kingdom has recently unveiled its latest Lunar Series coin, and it is yet another stunning design depicting the 9th creature in the Zodiac. The third release in the series, the all-new 2016 1 oz British Silver Monkey Coin is now available to sell online to Cash For Any Coins with two stunning new designs.
These 2016 1 oz British Silver Monkey Coins are part of the larger Shengxiao Collection from the Royal Mint. The Lunar Series was introduced in 2014 with a Year of the Horse design, and continued in 2015 with the Year of the Goat. The Year of the Monkey coin is the third in a series of 12 coins that represent the first Lunar Series ever produced by the Royal Mint.
This new obverse design is the first change in the Queens image on British coins since 1988. Created by 33-year-old Jody Clark, this image will replace the long-standing profile created by Ian Rank-Broadley. It marks the fifth total portrait update for Queen Elizabeth II, and fourth available in circulation.
