2014 $1 Bright Bugs Cuckoo Wasp Colour Unc Coin

Among the most resplendent insects to be found in Australia, the iridescent green, blue, and purple Cuckoo Wasp is truly befitting to be included in the Royal Australian Mint’s Bright Bugs Series.

As cunning as it is beautiful, this parasitic wasp lays its eggs in the nest of a ‘host’ species, whose unlucky larvae provide a food source for the wasp’s young.

Availability: Sold Out

Code: 569

When threatened by a rival, the cuckoo wasp can curl up into an almost impenetrable armoured ball.

Launched in early 2014, the Mint’s Bright Bugs Series features some of the continent’s most maligned and misunderstood; awe-spiring and eye-catching insects. Many children love collecting insects which makes these colour printed frosted uncirculated coins the perfect starters for coin collections–coins with insects on them!

With the colour print accentuating their radiant colours and each card highlighting fascinating facts about the insect, each coin will make a perfect addition to any collection for the young and young-at-heart. Make sure to collect them all!
