This coin represents one of the 12 animals featured in the Chinese lunar zodiac calendar, an annually changing calendar that moves to one of 12 different animals each year. 2016 is the Year of the Monkey, as well as every 12th year preceding it (2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956, 1944 and 1932, to name a few).
People born in the year of the Monkey are witty, intelligent, and have a magnetic personality. Their personalities are generally related to mischievousness, curiosity, and cleverness, and they are masters of practical jokes, because they like playing most of the time. Though they don't have any bad intentions, their pranks sometimes hurt the feelings of others. They are also believed to be fast learners and crafty opportunists.
