As the second coin the Bejeweled Bugs series, a Rhodium and Gold-plated bee gets its colorful sparkle from an array of precious and semi-precious gemstones (black sapphire, citrine and white topaz) that have been applied by hand.
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. This little agricultural helper gets the royal treatment on the coin’s reverse, where an array of gemstones add a colorful sparkle to an exquisite bee poised atop an engraved floral setting.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Jori van der Linde presents 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 jewelry-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 colorless twinkle, to mimic the luminous effect of sunlight.
