The Perth Mint is known for producing high quality and very pure gold and silver coins. Many Perth Mint coin series are different than other silver and gold coins because the designs change from year to year. This feature tends to generate a high degree of interest from investors and collectors who want to own each coin in the series.
Another major benefit of the 2016 Lunar Monkey 1 kg Silver coin is its sheer size. Many name brand silver coins are mostly produced in the traditional 1 oz size. The 1 kg coin provides investors with a larger sized coin to consider.
The Lunar Monkey Silver coin comes in 4 different sizes above 1 oz. These include 2 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz and 1 kg. This is a nice feature as it provides investors and collectors with options that they normally do not have with other name brand coins.
Those silver investors who live outside of Australia should also know that the Lunar Monkey is well recognized around the world. The coin can be easily bought and sold at most reputable precious metals dealers globally.
