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.

On the reverse side of each coin is the image of as it prepares to leap from one branch to the next in a tree. The monkey in the foreground has its arms outstretched, preparing to catch the next branch as its hind legs push off. In the background, another monkey can be seen swinging by its arms. Engravings on this side include “Year of the Monkey” and “2016” above, with the Chinese symbol for monkey below.

The obverse side of the 2016 1 oz British Silver Monkey Coin features a new design of Queen Elizabeth II for the first time in almost 30 years. Her right-profile image is encircled by engravings that include her name and the face value of the coin in Great Britain Pounds.

This new obverse design is the first change in the Queen’s 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.
