THEME The Chinese Gods Mythology Series
brings to life the battle of mythical characters
from popular Chinese novel, Journey to The
West. The third and final coin in the series
features Monkey King going face to face with
Erlang God in a heavenly battle.
After destroying Mother Queens peach party
and 100,000 heavenly soldiers to capture him,

DESIGN The 2 oz fine-silver coin is strucked in a new minting technique that
combines 11.5 oz of copper in between two layers of fine-silver resulting in
super ultra high relief while being topped off with silver antique finishing. The
design on the reverse features Monkey King and Erlang God going head to
head in their battle in the heaven with a Monkey King statue in the middle
gilded in Gold separating the two characters apart
