Coin Story

Those born in the Year of the Monkey are highly intelligent, have a positive sense of humour, and a magnetic personality which leads to them being prosperous individuals.

Always sociable, Monkeys are often seen ‘swinging’ from one group of friends to another, attracting a social following due to their charm and energy. Continually upbeat, they are often considered celebrities in their own circles thanks to their humour and sharp minds.

Romantically, those born during the Year of the Monkey make attractive and passionate lovers, due to their cheerfulness and wit. Monkeys are also great listeners and handle complicated situations or problems with ease, due to their natural intelligence and thirst for knowledge. This is emphasised in a career sense, where they can prosperously adapt to a variety of work environments. Skilled at problem solving, the Monkey is ambitious for success, which is usually granted due to their remarkable intelligence.
