The egg-shaped reverse design by Canadian artist Ann C. Morash weaves together patterns and symbols that capture the artistry of a Ukrainian Easter egg. Positioned within four triangular segments are golden blades of wheat, which convey best wishes for harvest and the soul of the clan. Beneath this overlay, the field is filled with the geometric figures that represent the sun and stars, to symbolize life, fortune and growth. These are framed by bands of waves that celebrate water as a life-sustaining element and harmony, which are in turn framed by evergreen boughs positioned along the edge, to symbolize eternal health and youth.

Your coin is beautifully enhanced by the meticulous application of colours that each carry deeper meaning: yellow represents light and purity; red is the colour of joy and folklore; green is associated with fertility, health and spring, which brings hope and renewal; and black suggests the darkest time before dawn, and the idea of constancy and eternity.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

This coin has amazing color and well struck love the low mintage of only 5000 The only down fall the shipping on this coin and many others are 30 days or longer unlike the United states mint when you order it is shipped the same week.

Great tradition to continue---very enjoyable ,priceless.


Above added remarks apply. Would buy each year as meaningful tradition to pass on.

Very nice 2nd generation painted "coin".


Very nice coin for a 2nd generation. Not as nice as the 2016 though. I feel the coin is ascetically off balance. I think the application of the colouring and centering of the visible silver at the centre of the egg is off. I like it very much, enough to buy two!
