As nature cycles through the seasons, the earth and the sun work together to give us everything we need, and that powerful relationship is celebrated on this 99.99% pure silver pysanka. Its colour-filled reverse features a deeply symbolic art style that is rooted in ancient tradition. With its earth-toned colours, harvest-inspired motifs and flashes of shining silver, your pysanka is not only a reminder of our ties to nature, but a symbol of continuity, of harmony, and the connections that bring life.


Designed by artist Natalie Kit, your colourful fine silver pysanka features a Trypillian art style inspired by surviving neolithic pottery. Flanked by four parallel lines of life, the centre band features solar symbols and a weaving pattern containing seeds that represent the harvest. Another weaving pattern representing connection and continuity fills the upper and lower bands, where the grain is nurtured by rainfall. Above and below those bands, more lines of life bring strength and frame the powerful eternity line. The ripening grain is contained by vertical lines representing the four seasons, which are guided by time, represented by the spiral forms. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.  The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.

Special features

  • A springtime tradition. Our annual Easter egg-shaped celebration of Ukrainian culture in Canada has been wildly popular with collectors! Through its deeply symbolic artistry, the pysanka is a beautiful reflection of the communities they come from, and it underscores the importance of cherishing tradition.
  • A sought-after addition. A bestseller every year since 2016. Previous pysanka coins all sold out quickly; for 2023, mintage is once again limited to 7,500 worldwide.
  • Includes serialized certificate. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
