This beautiful Silver coin is part of an ongoing series that is dedicated to the Scarabaeus - an ancient symbol of prosperity. The coin features a wonderful Ruby insert, has a beautiful selective Gold plating with an incredible design.
The family Scarabaeidae as currently defined consists of over 30,000 species of beetles worldwide, often called scarabs or scarab beetles. The classification of this family is fairly unstable, with numerous competing theories, and new proposals appearing quite often. Many of the subfamilies listed here probably will not be recognized very much longer, as they will likely be reduced in status below subfamily rank, or elevated to family status (the latter is most likely, e.g., with the family “Melolonthidae” already appearing in some recent classifications). Other families have been removed recently, and are nearly universally accepted.
The reverse of the coin features the wonderful image of a gilded scarab with opened wings, facing the ruby insert. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “NIUE ISLAND” – the issuing country, “2019” – the year of issue and “1 DOLLAR” – the face value.
