Incredibly Beautiful and Clever Technology!
Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin presents a close view of Canada's most common wild rose and the floral emblem of Alberta, Rosa acicularis. The leaves and flowers of this native shrub fill much of the engraved reverse, where the proof finish is as luminous as a bright summer day. The image is topped by two sterling silver-cast elements: a rose gold-plated bloom and a gold-plated bumble bee. Firmly affixed to the coin's surface, the five-petal flower is fully opened to expose the pollen-laden anthers that are a food source for pollinating insects. But the moveable bumble bee adds an interactive twist to this dimensional design; using gravitational force, the "flying" bee is able to circle around the rose whenever the coin is tilted from one side to the other.

Despite its unusual shape, each coin is safely housed inside a dome-like capsule that protects it. The coin-cum-statue rests on a wooden plinth or base, lined with black velvet, that conceals a hidden compartment for the certificate. The entire base and dome assembly is protected by a black outer box. An individually-numbered certificate of authenticity is included.
