Superstar Bee - in pure silver with esteem by Le Grand Mint
Founding father, turnover trillionaire, and food supplier for billions of people. The bee is a multi-talent. It’s also the guarantor of human civilization. Reason enough for Le Grand Mint to create a numismatic monument to the valuable bee. Following a classic tradition, of course. Even the ancient Greeks and Phoenicians paid homage to the eco-icon of modernity on silver drachma coins. Those highly cultivated traders grasped that without the bee, neither honey nor money flows. Still today its economic importance for agriculture is monumental. The annual pollination capacity of the hard-working bee is worth around 265 billion dollars worldwide. Like no other livestock, the black and yellow candle wax producer stands for the close intermeshing of nature conservation and global prosperity protection.
The stockpiling of bee colonies organized into states is also exemplary. That is why Le Grand Mint is dedicating the seventh fine embossing from our silver bullion coin collection "Wonderful World" to the wonderful bee, another stylish investment in the future. Beautifully conceptualized from multiple design award-winner Dirk Uhlenbrock (Ersteliga). Elegant and clear in design, the noble silver piece focuses on the bee - as a symbol of the cycle of nature. Embossed in the purest of 9999 silver, the coin pays highly deserved tribute to the bee - worthy of protection.

Superstar Bee - highly esteemed in fine silver from Le Grand Mint
"And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love," boasts the English on the latest silver piece in our Wonderful World coin collection. These wise and true words come from the philosopher Khalil Gibran. We also love the bee. As early as 2019, Le Grand Mint created a numismatic monument to the superstar bee. After all, the ancient Greeks and Phoenicians previously paid homage to the eco-icon of modernity on silver drachma coins. Those highly cultivated traders grasped that without the bee, neither honey nor money flows. Reason enough for Le Grand Mint to launch a continuation. We are proud to present the second silver coin in the design of a wonderful bee as part of our individual Wonderful World designs. With the altogether ninth fine embossing from our silver bullion design series "The Wonderful World," we are once again creating a stylish investment in the future. Beautifully designed by multiple design award-winner Dirk Uhlenbrock (Ersteliga): Elegant and clear in design, the noble silver piece focuses on the industrious bee and its diligent work. The second variation of the waggle dance can be seen as three blossom forms (basket blossom, calyx, grape) symbolize the wide range of the bee's flora in our wonderful world. Stunningly beautiful.
