The year 2016 is ruled by the Monkey, the Chinese zodiac that most closely resembles humankind. The Monkey personality is supremely intelligent and charismatic, with boundless agility. He is highly social; the ultimate inventor, motivator and schemer. Even when you realize the Monkey has tricked you, your fondness and admiration will endure. The Monkey is witty and charming; he will win your heart and keep it forever!
Canadian artist Three Degrees Creative Group has created a design that captures the true essence of the animal's character. The obverse features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by artist Susanna Blunt.
