SECOND COIN IN SERIES! A gemstone-adorned bee on a pure silver coin! Order today!

Buzzing loudly from flower to flower, the hard-working bee is a true gem in our gardens and fields. This pollinating wonder gets the royal treatment on this coin as a rhodium and gold-plated adornment, which sits atop an elaborately engraved floral pattern. Gemstones (black sapphire, citrine and white topaz) recreate the bee's yellow and gold bands and add a bright sparkle to its wings—like a splash of summer sunshine in the palm of your hand.

BEE-AUTIFUL! Sure to delight friends and family! Order today!

Special features:
  • HOW SWEET IT IS! A beautiful complement to the first coin in the Bejeweled Bug series that features a colourful butterfly. Collect them both to ensure a complete set!
  • THE GEM OF YOUR COLLECTION! An exquisite pairing of a gemstone-adorned bee on a 99.99% pure silver coin!
  • PRECIOUS AND SEMI-PRECIOUS GEMSTONES APPLIED BY HAND! The rhodium- and gold-plated bee gets its colourful sparkle from an array of precious and semi-precious gemstones (black sapphire, citrine and white topaz) that have been applied by hand.
  • BEE-AUTIFUL! Like a timeless piece of jewellery, the bee is meticulously positioned over an elaborately engraved floral pattern, whose etched curls are beautifully enhanced by the pristine proof finish.
  • THE OBJECT OF ADMIRATION! The unparalleled beauty and elegance of this coin will make it a sure stand-out in any collection, and a soon-to-be-treasured keepsake admired by friends and family!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • 1 OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is designed from one ounce of pure silver!
  • LOW MINTAGE! Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited mintage worldwide of only 4,000!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Jori van der Linde, your coin is a beautifully stylized portrait of a bee against a decorative floral backdrop. Inspired by tulip blooms and curly pea vines, a contemporary floral pattern provides a whimsical garden setting that includes flowers, leaves and curly flourishes. All are meticulously engraved and crisply defined in a stunning proof finish, which enhances the sparkle of the rhodium-plated bee on the coin's surface. The jewellery-like piece is adorned with a captivating array of semi-precious and precious gemstones, including: round black sapphire on its 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 twinkle, to mimic the luminous effect of sunlight.

Packaging:

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

What was the first coin in the series and is it still availble?

Debra

Hi Debra, The first coin in the series ("Bejewelled Bugs: Butterfly") is still available, but please note it's 91% sold (as of Sep 13). Here's the link to the product page; http://www.mint.ca/store/coins/coin-prod3000607

Chad

Hi assuming the price point and mintage I'm going to assume there will be more than two in the series. If so can The Mint look at making an interesting collector case for these coins. My daughter loves these and I'd like to have them in a case that accents the coins using semi precious stones.

Dreadnought

Hi Dreadnought, You may be correct in your assumption of more than two coins in this series, however we are not permitted to disclose details of potential future products prior to their release dates. We're very happy to hear your daughter love these coins! I've passed your request for a coin case to the product team for consideration. Please note we also sell various "floating frames" to display coins. Here's the link to our accessories page where they're all listed; http://www.mint.ca/store/buy/accessories_coins-cat120008
