    Comments about 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Year of the Monkey (2016):

    Of the various Year of the Monkey coins produced by the RCM, this design is my favourite. The lightly stylized monkey appears playful, and the detail shows well on this 1/2 oz. coin. Weighed against other options, it's also a rather good value.

                  New Year gift items should be attractive, ipressive and the figurine should be realistic.
