Honey bees possess a strong symbolism, as they play a great role in nature. Without pollination, the ecosystem will not survive. That is why the honey bee embodies fertility and life.
The reverse of this 2 ounce silver coin shows a busy hive of bees against a honeycomb background that are working to pollinate the crop and produce honey. The selective gilding technique helps to emphasize the fruitful results of their hard work.
