The Mint has decided to donate all net proceeds from the sale of this coin to the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.
For the past seven years, the Mint has issued pysanka-themed collector coins, a spring tradition that pays tribute to Ukrainian culture and artistry in Canada. As we prepare to launch this year’s collection, and in light of the invasion of UkraineThis link will open in a new window., the Mint has decided to donate all net proceeds from the sale of our 2022 gold and silver pysanka coins to the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.
Funds raised through this appeal will help the Red Cross respond to humanitarian needs emerging from the current conflict faced by Ukraine. We hope that our donation helps put words into action.
