The monkey is a clever animal. It is usually compared to a smart person. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the dignified Chinese official title of marquis was pronounced 'Hou', the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. The animal was thereby bestowed with an auspicious meaning.
Notable for its limited-edition ANDA overprint, your Year of the Monkey PNC combines an Australian legal tender $1 in Unc from the Perth Mint with an official Australia Post stamp.
