More info

The family Scarabaeidae as currently defined consists of over 30,000 species of beetles worldwide, often called scarabs or scarab beetles. The classification of this family is fairly unstable, with numerous competing theories, and new proposals appearing quite often. Many of the subfamilies listed here probably will not be recognized very much longer, as they will likely be reduced in status below subfamily rank, or elevated to family status (the latter is most likely, e.g., with the family “Melolonthidae” already appearing in some recent classifications). Other families have been removed recently, and are nearly universally accepted.


The reverse of the coins showcases three high-relief beetles in an array of unique surface finish. A Black scarab on a Rhodium background introduces the set and on the bottom of its reverse, the inscription: “SECRET RIDDLE” – the name of the coin. Next in line is a Rose Gold scarab on a Gold background holding a Swarovski crystal and the inscription: “SOLAR ZENIT” – the name of the coin. Completing the selection is a Silver scarab on a Rose Gold surface and the inscription: “WITHERING BLAZE” – the name of the coin. The obverse of all the three coins depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” - the name of the Queen, “5 DOLLARS” - the face value, “COOK ISLANDS” - the issuing country and “2017” - the year of issue.
