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.
