Comments about 18-karat Gold Coin – Year of the Monkey – Mintage: 2500 (2016):

I waited to buy the coin upon release for Chinese New Year in February. I purchased this gift for my husband's 60th birthday in May. I didn't open the package until it was time to wrap the gift and was disappointed the coin didn't come in the gold satin box, with red sleeve as specified on website. I am on call #3 to the Mint. Very frustrated. Asked why they would even send the coin out without the proper packaging? This is my first time purchasing a coin through the Mint. I'm hopeful this can be resolved.

              A:

              Hi dsychan,

              We are required to charge applicable taxes on products that are not fine silver or pure gold. This product is 18-karat gold and is therefore subject to taxes.

          • Q:

            the rc mint used to specify the proportion of metal in their gold alloys{gold/silver} are they using a different metal such as nickle to cut their cost?

              A:

              Thank-you - this is a great question. There have been no changes in the production of RCM gold alloys. They are still a combination of silver and gold‎.
