This coin is the first on the series "Animal Architects and features a painted honey bee atop a flower, collecting nectar for its colony. The denomination is unusual as well, being three dollars. The finish is layered over an embossed honeycomb of symmetrical hexagons. It also features the word "Canada," the date "2013," and the face value of "3 Dollars."

The beehive, home to and engineering feat of the honey bee, is built around an iconic structure: the honeycomb. This amazing architecture is a mathematically perfect matrix of hexagons, optimizing spatial coverage while minimizing the amount of construction material required for building-an achievement of engineering efficiency that is virtually unmatched.
