My goal was to create a design that could stand on its own, as well as complement the gold pysanka coins from previous years. This year's design is much more floral, containing no straight lines – it's all curves and arabesques – though there is still a rigorous geometric (and symmetric) foundation. The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine and a favourite of gardeners; on this coin, it is a joyful affirmation of Ukrainian tradition and the cycle of life.

The depiction of the sunflower on the gold coin issued for 2023 is one of pure joy and reverence for the role of the sun, and the gift of the sunflower, to the world. Honoured in many cultures around the world, the sunflower has an honoured and significant role in Ukrainian folklore, tradition, and the arts. Venerated for its strength, beauty, and the symbolism is signifies, this truly will be a most treasured offering of the Royal Canadian Mint.

The sunflower is a commonly used symbol for pysanka designs, and we wanted to bring it to life on our popular gold pysanka coin for 2023. We hope collectors will be delighted with this intricate and exquisite rendering of the sunflower, as we celebrate spring’s arrival and the return of sunny days!
