We are thrilled to announce the release of the 2022 $1 Honey Bee 1oz Silver Proof, an irresistible legal tender celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Australian honey bee! The bee’s knees, this MUST-HAVE coin is the ultimate acquisition for your collection – a masterpiece of design, exclusivity and precious metal purity!

There are more than 20,000 types of bees worldwide – a keystone species, bees play a vital role in preserving the biodiversity and health of Australian and global ecosystems. Australia is home to around 2,000 native bees and until 200 years ago did not have any native honey bees (Apis mellifera)! In 1822, the first honey bees arrived on our shores at Sydney Cove aboard the ship Isabella. They have helped build our great nation ever since, providing employment, pollinating a huge percentage of our crops and supporting Australia’s horticultural and agricultural industries. The Australian honey and beeswax industry is currently valued at around $90 million annually!

This alluring coin is a very worthy tribute to one of nature’s greatest miracles! A gorgeous design on a large 38.60mm flan depicts three detailed honey bees extracting pollen from Australia’s native Eucalyptus flower. Superbly struck to Proof quality from 99.9% PURE SILVER, the deliciously dripping honeycomb, and the accents on the bees themselves, have been cleverly finished-off in GENUINE 24-CARAT GOLD.

Only 1,000 of these important coins have been issued worldwide! You will definitely feel the sting of disappointment if you miss this opportunity to add one to you collection. Don’t delay, buy now!
