The fifth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's annual Commemorating Black History series pays homage to No. 2 Construction Battalion, the largest all-Black battalion-sized unit in Canadian military history. Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, the coin's reverse shines a light on the battalion's history and contribution in the First World War. Despite racial prejudice, the members of No. 2 Constructions Battalion persevered in their determination to serve, and a century later, their legacy remains an inspiration.
