Natalie Kit, Artist

My design reflects the infinite flow of time, with the river of life circling around and returning back in continuous harmony; the life-giving sky of light and rain; the bountiful earth producing the gift of food under the care of the people; and, during the seasonal death of winter’s sleep, the gathered and protected gifts of life, which are brought forth again in spring. To this day, the ancient symbols of harmony, fruitfulness, protection and life remain important and powerful symbols of the Ukrainian culture and people.

The design and imagery of the silver pysanka coin for 2023 pays homage to the unbreakable and undeniable tie to Mother Earth that the art of writing pysanky has depicted and honoured in its timeless tradition and history. This is the legacy of the Trypillian culture found thousands of years ago on present day Ukrainian land. The Royal Canadian Mint recognizes and honours this legacy with the release of this masterpiece of design and tradition

Our hope was to bring to life the Trypillian motifs that are indicative of natural ties between the earth and the sun, and we wanted to maintain the illusion of the egg’s natural curvature while mimicking an antique style using earthy tones. The natural shine of silver incorporated into the intricate pattern is intended to brighten your collection!
