More info

Bees are pure herbivores and sustain themselves almost exclusively on sweet nectar.
They collect albuminous pollen as nourishment for their larvae. Some species even set aside food reserves so that the whole bee colony is able to survive during food shortage periods.
Only the female bee has a venomous sting which is also called its defence thorn. During the course of evolution this tool developed from the egg laying organ. The sting is used to lay eggs, as well as for defence purposes.
The bee’s ecological importance is immense since it not only produces tons of honey, but is also the most important pollinator worldwide.
Therefore, the continuing depletion of the bee population could have serious consequences for mankind. Not only biodiversity but also our successful harvest is therefore endangered. According to calculations, the reduction in bee numbers could lead to annual financial losses of billions of Euros.


The reverse of the coin depicts a colorful bee in a honeycomb structure of cells, perfectly recreated in this coin. The cells are filled with amber-coloured resin. On the top of the coin, the inscriptions: “Apis Mellifera” – the name of the insect and “Honey Bee” – the name of the coin. In the center of the coin, the face value: “1 Dollar”. On the coin's obverse the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the issue year: “2016”.
