2023 $20 Fine Silver Coin - Commemorating Black History No.2 Construction Battalion

Regular price $110.00
/

This fine silver collectable coin honours the historic No. 2 Construction Battalion, Canada's first and largest all Black military unit. They served with distinction, and they were willing to risk their lives to preserve the very rights and freedoms that weren’t always afforded to them before, during, and after the First World War. From the unit’s formation in 1916 until its disbandment in 1920, the members of No. 2 Construction Battalion persevered in the face of anti-Black racism to provide vital support to Canada’s war effort, by assisting Canadian Forestry Corps (CFC) lumber operations in France. Despite racial prejudice, the members of No. 2 Construction Battalion persevered in their determination to serve, and a century later, their legacy remains an inspiration.
