This is the third 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! A first for an egg-shaped coin, reverse gold plating complements the vibrant colours on the reverse and accentuates the silver coin's engraved elements—including the effigy on the obverse.
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 egg-shaped coin is rich with symbolic meaning. With the worldwide mintage of 5 000 pieces, each Pysanka coin is a deeply meaningful and visually stunning gift to celebrate Easter or any special occasion!
