The Royal Australian Mint released the first of this gold proof lunar coin series in 2007. This particular coin depicted the Lunar Monkey of the Chinese Zodiac Calendar and was the tenth coin of the series. The Monkey is the ninth sign of twelve in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar. People born in the "Year of the Goat" are naturally quick witted and good at problem solving. Famous Goats include "Tom Hanks", "Will Smith" & "Yao Ming" Cole.
Struck in 1/10oz 99.99 fine gold and minted as a proof coin, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. Worldwide mintage is limited to 1,500. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a wooden two-piece presentation case held closed by magnets. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included.
Aluminium-bronze & Fine Silver (.999) $1 versions of the coin were also issued.
