It is one of summerís iconic moments: a buzzing black-and-yellow bumble bee plodding heavily from delicate bloom to delicate bloom. A subgroup of the roughly 730 described species of bees (Apoidea: Anthophila) in Canada, bumble bees (genus Bombus), native to the Americas as well as Europe, Asia, and North Africa, are important pollinators crucial to the ongoing survival of many flowering plants.
The North American species of Aster (reclassified in the 1990s to other genera, but still commonly known as asters) are flowering perennial herbs usually bearing striking blue, mauve, pink, or white flowers. These lovely plants share an important symbiosis with bumble bees: the bees are one of the astersí key pollinators and for many bumble bees, asters are a major food source. Asters are also easy to grow and thus a great choice for Canadian gardeners.
This is the second coin in the already hugely popular and world-renowned Royal Canadian Mint series featuring one-of-a-kind Venetian glass insect perfectly perched on an engraved and colourful flower. Venetian glass is prized around the world for its clear, vibrant colours and each bumblebee was handcrafted by a master glass-maker in Murano, Italy, making each one 100% unique! A fantastic collectorís item as well as a unique and beautiful one-of-a-kind gift to commemorate special occasions, the bumblebee coin is sure to follow the suit of the first coin in the series which sold out in a matter of days! Be sure to order swiftly to avoid disappointment but remember, due to our limited stocks we have had to impose a STRICT order restriction of just 2 coins per household/client to provide a fairer distribution amongst collectors.
This 99.99% pure silver coin comes in the Royal Canadian Mintís attractive branded clamshell case and is a great collectible for nature lovers, wildflower enthusiasts, conservationists, and more.
