Valentine De Landro, Artist

“For the composition, I needed to find a balance between what I thought were two prevailing characteristics: the journey and the community. The pioneering imagery was essential to communicating the spirit of Amber Valley, crossing through harsh terrain to reach a virtually unknown destination and to begin a legacy centred on the goal of a better life for their family; that idea is reflected in the posture and presence of the figures at the core of this design. The flourish on its base represents the terrain that the settlers had to tame and cultivate to build Amber Valley. Also, I wanted to leverage imagery from ads used to attract settlers to "Canada West"—ads that typically featured floral ornamental borders and frames.”

“I have had the honour to lead the Commemorating Black History series for the last four years, and with each new theme I learn something new about Black history. As a Black Canadian, I was not aware of Amber Valley and its rich history. This coin design is filled with symbolic imagery and tells the story of Amber Valley in a meaningful and impactful manner.”

“I appreciate the recognition this coin represents. The Black Settlers of Amber Valley are indeed deserving of this recognition, which includes both my paternal and maternal grandparents as well as my parents.”
