Special features:
  • OUR FIRST ALL-GOLD PYSANKA! A celebration of Ukrainian-Canadian culture, this Easter egg-themed piece is our first all-gold (99.99% pure) pysanka coin.

  • LOWEST MINTAGE OF ALL OUR PYSANKY! Mintage is set to just 250 coins worldwide—a much lower mintage than our pure silver pysanky.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • NO GST/HST!

Design:

Designed by artist Dave Melnychuk, your pysanka-themed design is an eternal blessing for all Canadians, represented by a wooden temple that is a welcoming symbol of community. Several bands representing eternity frame the multi-tiered church. An inner band of dots and waves reflect Canada’s motto, “A Mari Usque Ad Mare” (“From Sea to Sea”). On the outer band, compass-like stars are paired with upended squares that represent the earth. The face value “250 DOLLARS”, the year “2019” and the word “CANADA” are engraved in a font reminiscent of traditional carvings. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Across many cultures, the egg is a symbol of spring, rebirth and nature’s re-awakening.
  • Colour adds symbolism, with yellow signifying light and love. But for this pysanka, we’ve opted for an all-gold design to place the focus on the ornate art. The style is reminiscent of the famous gold artefacts of the Scythians, a nomadic people who once inhabited regions along the Black Sea coast, in present-day Ukraine and Russia.

Packaging:

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