1991 (MCMXCI) spoken "Nineteen Ninety One" or "9teen ninety-one" was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display the 1991 Gregorian calendar). It was the 1991st A.D. year, the 991st year of the 2nd millennium, the 91st year of the 20th century and the 2nd year of the 1990s.

The year 1991 is also trivially significant because it was a palindrome year: the number is the same read forwards or backwards. The next palindrome year was 2002 and the previous one was 1881. 1991 and 2002 are the closest palindromic years to each other in recent centuries. There will not be another one until 2112. The closest pair (apart from each pair of the first 9 (single-digit) years and the years 9 and 11) were 999 and 1001.

The year 1991 is designated in the Chinese calendar the Year of the Sheep (Ram or Goat).
