Product Details
They risked it all for the promise of freedom at the end of their long journey, and that freedom had a name: “The promised land” that is present-day Canada.

The 2022 Commemorative Black History coin honors the flight to freedom of those who “rode” the Underground Railroad to Canada, a safe haven after slavery was abolished on August 1, 1834. From the early 1800s through 1865, at least 30,000 enslaved people of African descent fled to British North America by way of a covert network of routes and safe houses. Many of these freedom seekers—men, women and children—traveled by foot, and often at night to avoid re-capture. Once in Canada, they found refuge in Black communities and settled in parts of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, where they were secure in their freedom, but not free from discrimination.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Limited mintage of 5,500 coins.
  • Comes in a black clamshell with a graphic outer box.
  • Obverse: Features a repeating maple leaf field pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
  • Reverse: Designed by Canadian artist Kwame Delfish, your coin’s reverse is an ode to the “Gospel Train” or Underground Railroad, the pathway to freedom for enslaved people of African descent in the 19th century. The placement of men, women and children along the coin’s edge creates a sense of circular motion to represent a long, continuous journey. The tall trees and rocky terrain are a reminder of some of the challenges they faced in the wilderness, where they often battled the elements while avoiding capture. Traveling at night, these freedom seekers are guided by the Big Dipper appearing in the night sky, where the stars directed them north to freedom and a new life in “CANADA.”
