Product Description

2016 New Zealand Honey Bee 1oz Silver Proof Coin

2016 New Zealand Honey Bee 1oz Silver Proof Coin: The hexagonal shape of the coin is based on a cell of honeycomb in a hive. In the honey-making process, worker bees build a honeycomb structure of cells where nectar and pollen are stored, and larvae develop.

The honey bee is brought to life on the coin with three-dimensional engraving and colour printing. It’s depicted sitting on the honeycomb, which has been partially filled with translucent amber-coloured resin – replicating real honey!
