Shop/International Coins (By The Singapore Mint)/Macau Lunar Series/2016 Macau Lunar Monkey Coins
The Monetary Authority of Macau proudly presents the Macau Lunar Coin Collection (2008 – 2019), which is exclusively minted and marketed by The Singapore Mint. The Macau Lunar Monkey Coin, ninth in this collection, is issued in conjunction with the arrival of the 2016 Year of the Monkey.

The obverse side of the coin features the outline of a witty monkey with a heavenly peach in its grasp, accompanied by a shower of peach blossoms in full bloom. In traditional Chinese culture, peaches are symbols of immortality, often associated with the monkey. The peach also represents wealth, abundance, longevity and everlasting good fortune in the brand new year. A plentitude of peach blossoms signifies abundance and wealth. The fresh burst of pink wafting from the peach blossoms brings forth the freshness of spring and renewed youth and vigour.

The reverse side features the Holy House of Mercy in the Historic Centre of Macao, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Throughout its history, the Holy House of Mercy has been the source of medical and social assistance for the underprivileged in society. Today, a museum has been established in the building, which boasts a diverse collection commemorating the charitable works in Macao.
