Bhutan Lunar Monkey 1 oz 999 Fine Silver Proof Colour Coin
Member Price: S$128.00
Not only known as one of the happiest country, the Kingdom of Bhutan is also popularly known as the Last Shangri-La of the world. The Kingdom of Bhutan is heavily forested and perched atop of a mountain among the clouds. Home to a stunning natural scenery with an exotic mix of flora and fauna, the Kingdom is also embellished with majestic architectures of Dzongz, Stupas and Monasteries, resulting in a picturesque view from every angle.
The obverse design of the coin features high relief minting of an inquisitive monkey. Using bold patterns and elements of floral, leaves and clouds to design the monkey, the mystical qualities of the Kingdom is tastefully reflected. The monkey sits within an auspicious ‘Ruyi’ cloud motif while holding a heavenly peach, symbolizing longevity and abundance.
On the reverse features the Punthang Dechen Phodrang (The Palace of Great Bliss), also known as the Punakha Dzong. Punakha Dzong is also host to the royal wedding of His Majesty, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema, filling this magnificent Dzong with love and blessing. The clouds surrounding the landmark further highlight Bhutan as the Kingdom in the clouds, the last Shangri-la of the world.
