2019 Canada $20 1-oz Silver Pysanka Egg Vegreville Shaped Proof
Collectors Will Be Scrambling to Get Their Hands on This Egg!
The United States may have the world’s Largest Ball of Twine, but Canada has its Pysanka Egg! Located in Vegreville, Alberta, the humongous sculpture stands three-and-a-half stories high, is 31 feet long and weighs more than two-and-a-half tons. Imagine the omelette that baby could make! Now this impressive sculpture serves as the design for the latest coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s immensely popular annual series that pays tribute to Pysanka Easter Eggs.
Struck in a full ounce of 99.99% fine silver, this year’s Pysanka Egg coin has been selectively colorized to perfectly mimic the gigantic original in Vegreville that attracts thousands of tourists each year. The colossal egg was even visited in 1978 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The 45 x 33 mm egg-shaped legal-tender proof features shades of gold and black in an intricate pattern consistent with traditional Pysanka Easter eggs from Ukraine. As home to one of Canada’s largest Ukrainian settlements, Vegreville was a fitting spot for the jumbo-sized egg that also serves as the center of an annual Pysanka Festival held each year during the first week of July. During the festival, ethnic dancing, instrumentalists, bands, singers, a market, and folk arts are held – including, of course, demonstrations on how to make Ukrainian Easter eggs.
