The Pysanka is both a cherished cultural expression and a centuries-old rite of spring. This annual favourite from the Royal Canadian Mint has sold out immediately and appreciated in value in the secondary market every year since it was first introduced in 2016.  This 2022 $20 one ounce fine silver pysanka egg coin is an egg-shaped symbol of rebirth and renewal featuring vibrant colours and intricately detailed patterns steeped in tradition. The mintage is limited to just 5,500. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The Pysanka coin’s reverse is designed by Canadian artist Dave Wasylyshen. The centre band features the word “CANADA”, a denomination of “20 DOLLARS” and the year, “2022”. The two main bands feature starburst and rose motifs symbolizing beauty, love, life and good fortune. The larger diamond and triangle shapes represent knowledge and wisdom; smaller triangles represent family, while the triangles with an inside sieve pattern signify the division of good and evil. Two outer bands contain a saw-like pattern that symbolizes loyalty and the sun’s rays, while the waves represent water and wealth. By using four or more colours, this pysanka conveys a blessing for a family’s prosperity: blue for the sky and good health; red for passion and happiness; yellow for youth and light; white for purity and birth; and black for eternity and the darkest time before dawn. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
