Story

The bees knees

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)! 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.

Native bee design

Struck from 1oz of pure silver in proof quality, the gorgeous design depicts three detailed honey bees extracting pollen from Australia’s native Eucalyptus flower. The deliciously dripping honeycomb, and the accents on the bees themselves, have been cleverly plated in genuine 24-carat gold to replicate the natural hue of honey under sunlight.
