Pet monkeys vary greatly in value, depending on several factors.

It is worth noting that most monkeys are not allowed by law to be sold as pets. This is because it is deemed very cruel to take them out of their natural environment and then keep them in a cage. Monkeys are free roaming animals and it is against everything in their nature to be kept in a cage.

A lot of the monkeys already out there to buy have come from the black market. These sellers are acting illegally by bringing monkeys on to the market, and the worst thing is, if you are found to own one of these monkeys, you can be the one in trouble with the authorities. At best you will be fined a large sum of money and the monkey will be taken from you, and at worst you could be arrested for keeping monkeys illegally. 

Black market sellers will also more than likely charge extortionate prices for their merchandise. On top of this, you have to consider the cost of feeding and watering your monkey and making sure it stays healthy. Monkeys are social animals, and so if you do not have more than two or three, they will get lonely. This again bumps up your cost, not only buying them but then buying more food to look after three monkeys.

Monkeys are very temperamental and could attack you at any time because they are wild animals and are not bred to be captive pets. Therefore, they would not make very good pets. There are plenty of other animals out there that would make great pets for you, that will not be as expensive to look after and will not be as dangerous to you. Your local pet store should have plenty of choice for you to pick an animal that you like.

What species are you calling a mini monkey? Is it a type of marmoset, tamarin, squirrel or some other type of monkey? You have to consult your local animal control, fish and game and USDA for licenses and requirements.

Monkeys are expensive to purchase and very expensive to care for in any sort of proper way. In the end most monkeys do not stay with the original purchaser and get passed around or end up in a sanctuary or put to sleep so please do considerable research and try to get plenty of actual experience before making that decision. Some of the species that might be considered pocket or mini monkeys are also extremely susceptible to the herpes virus and one sheds a form that can kill a couple of the others so they can not be housed near each other. Does anyone in the house get cold sores? If you are considering a macaque be sure to research them and the herpes B virus first. And rage syndrome.  If there is a primate sanctuary anywhere near you, you might want to spend several thousand hours volunteering first if you can. Talk to people that have them and people that used to.

Rather than ask price, know that they are hard to take care of and have many issues which do not make them a good pet to have.
