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.


The Artist: Dave Wasylyshen

“As an artist, the entirety of the design is meaningful to me as it represents important core values: life, family and love. My hope is that the overall appearance is seen as both beautiful as it is meaningful, and that the coin will become a cherished and valued possession for years to come.” - Dave Wasylyshen, Artist

The Product Manager: Alicia Cook Sapene

“I find the art of pysanky fascinating. From the selection of colours to the different motifs, each pysanka coin is a unique masterpiece, and I’m amazed by the intricacy of the designs!” - Alicia Cook Sapene, Product Manager

The Expert: Janet C. Prebushewsky Danyliuk

“The magical and mystical Ukrainian Easter Egg, the Pysanka, is truly an icon onto its own. Steeped in tradition, folklore, and symbolism, it provides a gateway of hope, generosity, and love, as written by its creator. The egg itself is a miracle in that it contains and gives life. This is its mystery and its power like no other object in the universe. The Ukrainian Museum of Canada, in Saskatoon is honoured to be a part of this very significant and meaningful project recognizing a beautiful legacy shared from generation to generation, from person to person, and from one culture to another.” - Janet C. Prebushewsky Danyliuk, Director and CEO, Ukrainian Museum of Canada


These 2022 fine silver pysanka feature a vibrant mix of colours that are commonly seen on Ukrainian Easter eggs. But a blue colour was historically difficult to produce—it was rarely seen before the advent of modern dyes, which opened up many more design possibilities.

You don’t paint a pysanka, you write one—the word “pysanka” comes from the verb pysaty, meaning “to write.” And you can have one pysanka, but if you’ve collected every fine silver pysanka coin issued since 2016, you own six pysanky (the plural form of “pysanka”)—soon to be seven with this 2022 edition.


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