SpacerStar Trek: Voyager debuted in 1995 and ran for seven seasons until 2001. In a unique development, it saw the franchise’s first female captain in a central role. Played by American actress Kate Mulgrew, Kathryn Janeway is a tough and courageous commander – highly intelligent, thoughtful, dedicated and diplomatic.

The action takes place in the 2370s. While attempting to capture the crew of a rebel Maquis vessel, her ship is pulled into the distant Delta quadrant by powerful alien technology. Stranded 70,000 light-years from Earth, Janeway convinces the renegades to join her Starfleet crew and serve together during the long voyage home to Federation space.

Smaller than either Kirk’s or Picard’s starships — its crew complement is only 150 — U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656 is nevertheless one of the most technologically advanced vessels in Starfleet. With the ability to land on a planet’s surface, its technical innovations include bio-neural circuitry, variable geometry warp nacelles, and an Emergency Medical Holographic program.

Get ready for Chinese New Year with the ever popular proof issues from the Australian Lunar gold and silver coin series!


Occupying 9th position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Monkey is said to bestow intelligence, optimism, ambition and adventurousness on the character of people born under its influence.

Celebrating the 2016 Year of the Monkey, the latest proof issues from the annual Australian Lunar gold and silver coin series pay tribute to these cheeky and resourceful animals.

Monkey Years

If you were born under the sign of the Monkey in any of these years – 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 – then each of these stunning releases would make a wonderful personal keepsake.

Or if you’ll be rejoicing at the birth of a newborn on or after Chinese New Year (8 February 2016), the coins represent a beautiful gift!

Symbolic Designs

In Chinese culture, the peach is symbolic of longevity and immortality. In the gold coin design, the monkey is portrayed contemplating the fruit of a peach tree. In the silver coin design, an adult is sitting with a baby monkey who is holding a peach. The Chinese character for ‘monkey’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Monkey’ also appear in the designs.

Weights & Mintage

Adding to the exclusivity of these coins are their extremely limited availability.
