DESIGN

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 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.
