This is the first-ever egg-shaped coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint! Struck from 1 oz silver 9999 with vibrant color throughout the elaborate design, the coin recreates the breathtaking hand-crafted artistry of a Ukrainian Easter Egg! The worldwide mintage is limited to 4 000 pieces.

The obverse of the pysanka coin displays the portrait of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. This side of the coin also includes the inscription indicating the Queen’s name and the legends denoting the face value of the coin as well as the issuing year.

With its handcrafted beauty, rich symbolism and colorful patterns, the pysanka egg is one of the most beloved forms of traditional folk art, and a unique celebration of spring! This carefully decorated Easter egg is a veritable treasure trove of symbolism, where each motif and colour carries a deeper meaning that bestows a special blessing upon its recipient. Every element on this Ukrainian Easter egg is rich with symbolic meaning, including the individual colours: yellow stands for youth and purity; red represents the joy and passion in life; green is the colour of spring, which brings hope and renewal; and black suggests the darkest time before dawn, and the idea of eternity. A deeply meaningful and visually stunning gift to celebrate Easter or any special occasion!
