2024 Commemorating Black History - Amber Valley 1 oz Fine Silver Coin


Discover the story of one of western Canada’s largest all-Black settlements.

They headed north to Canada, lured by the promise of land and guided by the hope of a better life free from racial violence. Arriving in Amber Valley (formerly Pine Creek), Alta., the Black settlers worked hard to establish a thriving community, some 300 people strong, blazing a trail as they went and building a rich legacy through their achievements.

The 2024 Commemorating Black History coin brings to life an often-overlooked story from Canada’s immigration history. Its finely engraved reverse captures the spirit of Amber Valley—one of the largest Black settlements in western Canada during the early 20th century—and honours the Black pioneers who persevered through hardships and hostility, facing down discrimination and building up a foundation for future generations.

COMMEMORATING BLACK HISTORY: This is the sixth coin in our annual Commemorating Black History series, which honours the enormous contributions that Black Canadians have made—and continue to make—to Canada’s story. It is a celebration of resilience, innovation and determination.

CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF AMBER VALLEY: Crafted in 1 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, this coin pays tribute to the community of Amber Valley, one of the largest all-Black settlements in western Canada in the early 20th century.

AN IMPORTANT STORY: This is the first time Amber Valley has been highlighted on a Mint coin, and its reverse design combines different engraved images to create a compelling snapshot in time and a glimpse of Amber Valley’s past.

HIGHLY INTRICATE DESIGN: From the ornamental flourishes to the representation of some of Amber Valley’s earliest buildings, every engraved detail has historical meaning.

THE FOCUS IS ON HISTORY: To keep the focus on the Amber Valley community, the only word engraved on the reverse is “CANADA”—the date and face value are inscribed on the obverse.

MAPLE LEAF PATTERN: As with previous Commemorating Black History coins, the 2024 edition features a symbol of Canada on its obverse, where the maple leaf forms a repeating pattern that fills the field.

LOW MINTAGE: Only 5,500 coins are available to collectors worldwide.

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