WORLD BEE DAY 2022!!
Today, 20 May, is World Bee Day!! I know. It's amazing. As a bee keeper myself I wanted to share the good news with everyone. I am not a big colorized coin guy but I couldn't pass this one up. I won this coin at a Canadian Numismatic Society auction a few years ago. It is a 2017 Canadian 20 dollar silver non-circulating bullion coin. It is called Mother Nature's Magnification.
The Reverse shows a Bumble Bee on some flowers with a dew drop on a leaf. As shown in the blurry picture the dew drop is enlarged above the coins surface. The reverse shows Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is 38mm in diameter, weighs in at 31.39g of .9999 fineness silver. It is a bit hard to tell because of all the features but it is also a proof finish.
To get right down to it, it's just another beautiful Canadian bullion coin. BUT I love it. Thanks for checking out this tiny blog. Appreciate the pollinators if you like to eat. Please feel free to comment.
Not a fan of colorized coins either. Love to see animals, insects and natural designs on coins.
Happy late bee day!! Bees are important pollinaters- nice coin!
Neat coin. I have some similar modern coins that just caught my attention. They are fun.
Iâ€™m also not big on colorized coins but this is a real beauty. Happy late Bee Day!
Cool coin! I like the design.

Glad to see it. I saw a polinators listened plate yesterday for the first time
You and I share similar thoughts on colorized coinage. I only buy what strikes my interest and this one does just that. Gorgeous!
