This spectacular and unique $20 fine silver coin features a gemstone-adorned bumble bee on a one ounce fine silver coin.  Buzzing from flower to flower, the hard-working bee is a true gem in our gardens and fields, where its quest for nectar makes it a pollinating wonder. In addition to being an attractive and innovative work of numismatic art, collectability is enhanced by the extremely low mintage of just 4,000 coins.  HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The life-sized bee on this coin is a high end jewellery quality work of art created in silver and embellished with genuine gemstones.  The gemstones include round black sapphires on the bee’s head, thorax and abdomen; citrine stones arranged over gold plating to re-create the bee’s characteristic yellow markings; and an array of white topaz that fills the delicate wings and gives them a colourless sparkle to mimic the luminous effect of sunlight.
