2016 Lunar Monkey King?

I was browsing Apmex's web site and came across a new series for the 2016 perth mint lunar series called the "monkey king"? I have never heard if this before, and was wondering if anyone on here could possibly shed some light? It apparently will be coming in all sizes from the 1/2 oz to kilo.

Re: 2016 Lunar Monkey King?

The coin was made for the asian market. Its about a mythological figure. Each child in china knows about it.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Wukong

There is also a golden ring edition.
I do not see a new series, should be a single event matching the year of the monkey - but you never know.

The coin itself is very impressive. I can not descibe it but the colour looks like other comapred to the the regular lunar colorized coins.
It appears a bit to be relief. 10oz is impressive. I was very sceptical but did order them. In the end i was surprised.

Another source maybe easier for aussies than apmex - https://www.lpm.hk/silver/perth-mint/monkey-king.html

Has anybody a source to order the 2oz version ?

Re: 2016 Lunar Monkey King?

Any real pictures of the coin though? The proof and the colored one.

Re: 2016 Lunar Monkey King?

I just received the 5oz from Apmex and really like the coin and the quality of the coloring. I think 10oz would be the perfect size so i ordered another.

Re: 2016 Lunar Monkey King?

Just wondering if only the 2oz came in the gold ring, or does the other sizes come in gold rings too?

Re: 2016 Lunar Monkey King?

Careful with these, there were claims that some fakes were in the market (previous series) so maybe the new series will also become a target for the fakers. See here: http://www.silverlunar.com/2012/10/fake … ns-on.html

E.g, that site says the following are images of fakes:
