Wishing health and longevity for family and friends is one of China's greatest traditions, and this unique coin is brimming with good blessings. Designed in the style of traditional Chinese paper cutting, it features a monkey (a symbol for health) holding a peach, the divine fruit of the gods that is believed to bring longevity. Even the number of peaches and blossoms—nine—is a symbolic wish for a long and fulfilled life, as is the added luck built into the mintage of 588.

The reverse features a design by Canadian artists Chris and Rosina Reid in the distinctive artistic style of traditional Chinese paper cutting. The inspiring design centres on a monkey, whose curiosity and energetic ways are the embodiment of the desire to taste the flavours of a full and healthy life. In the monkey's hand is a peach; this sacred symbol of longevity and immortality is regarded as the divine fruit of gods, and expresses a wish for a long life. The monkey is at the base of a peach tree, which is covered with eight additional peaches and nine peach blossoms—an auspicious number, as the number "9" is associated with royalty and has often been used in ancient Chinese art to convey best wishes and longevity. Above and to the right of the monkey is a Chinese symbol that conveys the blessing of "health". The face value "150 DOLLARS", the year "2016", the word "CANADA" and the Chinese characters for "CANADA" are all engraved within the outer band that frames the image field. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
