Coin Story

The Coccinellidae are a family of small beetles, ranging from 0.8 to 18 mm. They are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, heads and antennae. Such colour patterns vary greatly, however; for example, a minority of species, such as Vibidia duodecimguttata, a twelve-spotted species, have whitish spots on a brown background. Coccinellids are found worldwide, with over 5,000 species described. Coccinellidae are known colloquially as ladybirds, ladybugs, or lady cows, among other names. When they need to use a common name, entomologists in the United States widely prefer the names ladybird beetles or lady beetles as these insects are not true bugs.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures a (glas) ladybug sitting on a tulip. The flower, and the bug, are coloured and offset themselves from the silver proof background.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Packaging

The Tulip with Ladybug 1oz Silver coin comes in a special presentation case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
