A triumph of artistry, this 2020 $250 pure gold pysanka coin puts the focus on the beautifully symbolic language of the pysanka. Every Ukrainian art motif, every pattern engraved on this rare Easter Egg is a story within a story–including its tree-of-life motif, which shines with a golden gleam that promotes prosperity. It all comes together to form one exquisite, egg-shaped celebration of a season of renewal and rejuvenation. Mintage limited to 200. HST/GST exempt.
The pysanka design by Canadian artist Natalie Kit features a Ukrainian tree-of-life motif that symbolizes life and growth. An eight-pointed star tops the floral tree of life and represents the sun, while the basket base symbolizes the knowledge that promotes growth. Circular shapes form an infinity line and frame the tree of life. Below, the ribbon-like bands represent the unbroken thread of life and contain partial cross motifs. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
