Design
The reverse features an original pysanka design by Canadian artist Dave Wasylyshen. An ancient symbol of sun and fire, beginnings and endings, the cross appears in both 'T' and 'X' form to signify crossroads and the four corners of the world. Other traditional motifs include ribbons to represent eternity/harmony; diamonds, triangles and dots that represent knowledge, wisdom and stars; and ladders and waves that represent prosperity and everlasting life. The colours are also symbolic, with blue representing the sky and good health; red for passion and happiness; and yellow for purity and light. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know?
Traditional pysanky (the plural form of "pysanka") featured a more limited colour palette—typically black, red, yellow, or white—due to the use of natural dyes that were derived from plants and minerals. Colours that were historically difficult to produce, like the blue featured on this pysanka coin, became more common with the advent of modern dyes.

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