Pysanka Coin, 2018 Golden Spring Design:

Our third pysanka coin is an Easter egg-shaped celebration of spring. Like a splash of sunlight, the gleam of reverse gold plating fills the field and accentuates the silver coin's engraved elements on the obverse. This golden background is skillfully integrated into the colour-over-engraved reverse, where, per Ukrainian tradition, every detail has special meaning—from the "sky" blue to the bud-laden branches signifying nature's awakening.

Designed by Ukrainian Canadian artist Ann C. Morash, your pysanka-themed coin is adorned with multiple precision-engraved patterns and traditional symbols that, when viewed together as one, express a wish for spring to arrive and the earth to awaken from its winter slumber.

A full colour application allows glimpses of the coin's reverse gold plating, which adds a golden nuance to select elements throughout the reverse. As per Ukrainian tradition, each colour carries deeper meaning: blue is for the sky, the air, and life-giving health; yellow signifies youth and purity; red is the colour of joy and passion; green is associated with spring and its message of hope and renewal; and black suggests the darkest time before dawn, and the idea of eternity.

The outer edge features a partial view of a flower that symbolizes beauty and the blossoming of spring, followed by a linear pattern of branches and sprouting buds that represent nature's awakening. As a stylistic representation of birds, the coxcombs within the next band symbolize spring and fertility, while the dots represent tears. The widest band features a traditional representation of stars and the sun as a symbol of life, good fortune and growth; the solar theme extends to the circles that represent eternity and the light of the sun, while the wavy lines signify the sun's rays and human frailty. The small triangles represent a trinity: fire, air and water, or a more spiritual-based interpretation that includes the heavens.

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

By Ukrainian-Canadian artist Ann C. Morash. This is the first-ever egg-shaped coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint! Struck from 31,39 g silver 9999 with vibrant color throughout the elaborate design, the coin recreates the breathtaking hand-crafted artistry of a Ukrainian Easter Egg!

This carefully decorated Easter egg is a veritable treasure trove of symbolism, where each motif and colour carries a deeper meaning that bestows a special blessing upon its recipient. Every element on this Ukrainian Easter egg is rich with symbolic meaning, including the individual colours: yellow stands for youth and purity; red represents the joy and passion in life; green is the colour of spring, which brings hope and renewal; and black suggests the darkest time before dawn, and the idea of eternity. A deeply meaningful and visually stunning gift to celebrate Easter or any special occasion!


Pysanka Coin, 2017 Wheat Design:

The egg-shaped 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 abundant 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.
