Following the successful first and second Chinese Almanac puzzle coin sets in January 2014 and 2015 respectively, the 2016 Chinese Almanac puzzle coin set also features a centerpiece surrounded by 12 coins, each depicting an animal in the third Chinese Almanac series. This monkey coin set is struck from 8 oz silver 999 and has got the mintage of 2 000 pieces worldwide.
The coins are joined together using a 3-way interlocking concept to form a circle. Precision minting was required to achieve this innovative mechanism.
The animals are featured against a background of Chinese characters representing the respective year of the animal in the Chinese lunar calendar. The centerpiece features a local orchid hybrid, created in celebration of Singapore’s Jubilee -Papilionanthe Singapore Golden Jubilee, in vibrant colors. According to the ancient Chinese zodiac, human character is interpreted not by the month, but rather by the lunar year of birth. The Chinese believe that people born in the year of the monkey are astute, intelligent and flexible which enables them to solve problems with ease. This amazing coin set will make a beautiful gift for someone born in 2016 or any other Monkey year!
