                this is one of many in a collection that goes for another several years.
                The display case is outstanding and all the coins in the case look awesome.

                Comments about Fine Silver Lunar Lotus Coin – Year of the Monkey (2016):

                With all the comments about the monkey, I think the design isn't that bad with the unforgivable deletion of it's missing foot - they can hide the other hands and feet off the scalloped edges, but the left foot that fully disappears behind the skinny branch is unbelievable and screams error. Very, very lazy artistic design and takes away from the other beautiful coins in this series.
                Never should have passed the editing desk and reflects poorly on what used to be a quality first only mint...

                RCM -What happened? Quality control complacent?

                I have to agree with other subscribers, RCM has been known for it's quality and perfection to every detail. I have bought other coins and have been satisfied, but this stands out as almost an error in production. I hope this is a one off in erorrs. I enjoy buying from RCM.

                    Comments about Fine Silver Lunar Lotus Coin – Year of the Monkey (2016):

                    I have never seen such an amateurish and ugly reverse side of a collectors coin ever. This bizarre human-monkey hybrid without hands is just bad ju-ju.
                    This is the weakest coin in the set by far. I hope the RCM takes note and improves it judgement and quality for the remainder of the series.
                    If I didn't get roped into buying this set I would never have bought it on its own.
                    Truly shocking...

                            A:

                            "CRR" is the initials of the artist who design the coin. We put the same initials on other coins in the same series, if they are designed by the same artist.
