Just like the industrious honey bee, this 1oz silver proof coin has a lot to offer. Minted from 0.999 silver with selective colour. Features honeycomb partially filled with resin – replicating real honey. Limited worldwide mintage of just 1,500. Each coin includes a unique numbered certificate. 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! One New Zealand dollar. Proof with selective colour and resin.
