Today, 20 May, is National 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.

2000 Barbados One Cent

Coins-World | AC coin$

Turn of the century Barbadian cent minted in shiny armor. It depicts the famous Neptune Trident as an island honoring the blessings from the sea it is surrounded by. But this image also evokes the island-nation purpose for its citizens: a government from the people, by the people and for the people contained in its constitutional act.The Barbados cent is no longer produced because of its high cost when evaluated against its worth in the markets. It was left for other higher denomination coinage.The island strives to sustain itself from the revenues of tourism which is always high and seafaring exports and imports. The Coin also bears the beautiful Barbadian Coat of Arms. Enjoy, thanks for your comments.

The multi-language Kingdom of ancient Burma is a land of glorious temples and lordship houses built many centuries ago. Thru a long period of time under British Commonwealth domination it became independent in 1948.

1982 China 2 "Fen" Coin

Coins-World | AC coin$

Beautifully minted with the Tian'anmen or Gates of Heavenly Peace and the distant image of the Forbidden City, this nice 2 Fen coin holds the National Symbols of modern China and its capital Pekin.The currency of the People's Republic of China is the "Yuan" and since 1948 it holds a surname called the "Renminbi" but it is mostly known as the Yuan. Its monetary code is the CNY. Many adjustments have been made to all the currency by the People's Central Bank since 1978, mostly in denominations for printed money items and artistic designs. Most Chinese modern currency is sober and simple in features of art and design, and yet being practical it also holds beauty and organized carved, minted or printed elements.This is an attractive acquisition to my collected international coinage and currency.
