As in previous years, this 2024 fine silver pysanka coin features intricate folk-art motifs and beautifully bold colours, but its reverse is a more modern cultural expression. Mixing contemporary colours with traditional symbols celebrating the relationship between the earth and sun, this pysanka reflects the evolution of a cherished artform—one that remains rooted in tradition yet offers endless creative possibilities.


This egg-shaped coin’s reverse features an original pysanka design by artist Tanya Mykytiuk, with motifs rooted in tradition and enhanced with contemporary colours. Diamonds represent knowledge and the four corners of the earth, while nets denote the division of good from evil and right from wrong. The eight-pointed star motif – an ancient symbol of the sun and the return of spring – appears alongside stylized flowers, flanked by periwinkle (barvinok) leaves and vines; together, these symbols radiate hope and resilience while celebrating the relationship between the earth and the sun, and the cyclical nature of life. 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.
