SELLS OUT EVERY YEAR! Order your Pysanka coin before they’re all gone!

At the eastern edge of Vegrevillle, Alberta, stands an egg-shaped symbol of harmony. The 2,300-kilogram pysanka is a centennial monument to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. It is a wonder of computer-aided design, complete with colourful patterns that are a celebration of peace, history and tradition. Our fourth pysanka coin is an easy-to-hold version of Vegreville’s world-famous Ukrainian Easter egg. On the reverse, every symbol, colour and detail has a special meaning — even the appearance of tiles that turned a cultural expression into a geometric marvel.

Your coin celebrates the giant Pysanka statue from Vegreville, Alberta! Order today!

Special features:
  • A CELEBRATION OF UKRAINIAN-CANADIAN TRADITION. This pysanka coin is a representation of the Ukrainian Easter egg monument in Vegreville, Alta., home to one of Canada’s largest Ukrainian settlements.
  • AN EGG-SHAPED COIN AND THEME! On the egg-shaped design, deep colours and engraved details capture the intricate beauty of the pysanky tradition.
  • RICH IN SYMBOLISM! A pysanka’s colours and symbols each have special meaning—as they do on your 99.99% pure silver coin.
  • CONTINUING A TRADITION OF OUR OWN. Your coin is being issued at the same price and mintage (5,000) as the 2018 Pysanka Egg coin.
  • NO GST/HST!

Design:

Your coin is a small-scale reproduction of the Vegreville Pysanka. Fine engraving mimics the tiled look of the geometric design, which includes five key elements: a radiating sunburst to symbolize growth, fortune and eternal life; triangles that signify a trinity and unity; a straight band to represent eternity; six-pointed stars that are a representation of windmills, a symbol of a good harvest; and finally, a wolf tooth pattern for security, as a tribute to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The colours are also symbolic, with gold and silver representing fortune while bronze signifies the land that sustained Vegreville’s early population and their descendants.

Did you know…
  • Constructed in 1975, the Vegreville Pysanka stands three and a half stories high and measures 7.8 metres (25.7 feet) long by 5.5 metres (18 feet) wide.
  • Paul Maxum Sembaliuk designed the pysanka, while computer modelling made it possible to use two-dimensional tiles to create the three-dimensional egg. It took more than 12,000 hours to design, manufacture and assemble the puzzle-like design, which consists of 524 star patterns and 2,208 equilateral triangles. In all, the structure has 3,512 visible facets that are supported by 177 internal struts, and all held together with 6,978 nuts and bolts.
  • The egg-shaped monument is clad in anodized aluminum, with specially selected colours that will never fade.
  • It turns in a strong wind — just like a weathervane!
  • Beneath the giant egg is a written caption in four different languages (English, French, German and Ukrainian), which speaks to the community’s multicultural history.

Packaging:

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

I've bought each and everyone of these since they were first introduced. It's one of the most recognizable Geometric Coins of the World. Which has put the Royal Canadian Mint at the forefront of coin collecting. This coin not only comes in silver, but, has a low mintage and is colorized. I believe with all the colors this World of ours has to offer that the Mint should and must continue this coin production for a minimum of ten years. Again the Canadian Coin Collectors should be proud of all the Products their engravers and staff are releasing to the public. I'm proud to say Colorized Coins will be and is the future of collecting. Please pass on to all staff at the Royal Canadian Mint - "OUTSTANDING JOB".

The annual Pysanka Easter egg coin secretly arrives each year with little fanfare. The coins usually sell out within two days due to very limited mintage and good luck in acquiring one from your local dealer. Fourth in the series. Hopefully RCM continues to release these gems in years to come.

I've been checking the website every day for over a week to see when the 2019 coin would be announced. Lo and behold, it appeared today but there does not seem to be a way for me to order one. How can I get one at a reasonable price? Why do I have to go through a dealer?
