Honey Bees contribute to the country's agricultural success by pollinating crops. This year marks the bicentenary of Australia's Honey bee industry, with the coin commemorating both the remarkable creatures and conscientious Beekeepers. Produced by the Royal Australian Mint and the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council, the intricately-designed and delightfully bright coin celebrates the worker bee in us all. This is a highly collectable item and is supplied in its original protective capsule and on a full-colour presentation card. Honey Bees are one of the most recognisable insects and are the most commonly domesticated bee species in the world.They are somewhat variable in colour but are usually brown with a banded dull yellow and brown abdomen. The head, thorax and abdomen are densely covered in hair. The legs and around the eyes are also hairy. These highly social insects live in large hives dominated by a single queen. The queen is larger than workers or the male drones, and is responsible for egg laying and for controlling the hive using pheromones. The majority of the hive is made up of worker bees that build and maintain the hive, and collect nectar and pollen to feed the developing bee larvae. You may not get the'exact' item shown - stock images supplied by the Mint (please allow for minor variance). Note: Mint coins may show some marks from the minting processes. The coin cards may also have very MINOR marks (from general production and distribution). In both cases, this is perfectly normal. Sent via'Tracked post' in an envelope / satchel / box (usually via Australia Post). However, if you require the use of a PO Box then please message me. Please advise if you have time-sensitive requirements and I will endeavor to assist you where possible. Again, it is important to message me prior to purchasing so I can best assist you (and provide a more accurate quote).
