GOLDEN SPRING PYSANKA! – 2018 $20 1 oz Fine/Pure Silver Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint

A very special Easter gift!
BRAND NEW $20 Legal Tender Collector coin
Mintage: 5000.
 
Though many cultures regard the egg as one of spring’s most enduring symbols, few do so as beautifully as the Ukrainian people, whose Pysanka is a reminder of life’s beginnings and the potential inherent in every living thing! Enhanced with reverse gold plating, this egg-shaped celebration of spring pays tribute to the tradition of the Ukrainian Easter egg through the colours and motifs on its reverse.
 
• THE FIRST OF ITS KIND TO FEATURE REVERSE GOLD PLATING! A first for an egg-shaped coin, reverse gold plating complements the vibrant colours on the reverse and accentuates the silver coin’s engraved elements— including the effigy on the obverse.
• MEANINGFUL DETAILS: From the smallest dot to the “sky” blue colour, every single design element has symbolic, even historic meaning in this design based on Ukrainian tradition.
• A CHERISHED TRADITION: Beyond its elaborate appearance and spring theme, this pysanka coin is an artistic tribute to the more than 1.2 million Ukrainian - Canadians, whose traditions are a rich part of Canada’s and Ukraine's heritage.
• A HIT WITH COLLECTORS: Sold out at the RCM.
 
DESIGN
* 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.
These four bands are mirrored on the other side of a centre band, which reveals the coin’s silver surface and bears the engraved face value “20 DOLLARS”, the year “2018” and the word “CANADA”.
* The reverse gold- plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
