Kwame Delfish, Artist

"This coin is meant to honour and pay homage to the ancestral slaves that escaped to the North in search of freedom. Many did not get to complete the journey and faced the same (if not more) hardships than what they left behind. The ones that made it built their legacies and shaped the mosaic that Canada is today. My hope is that their strength and courage is illustrated on this coin, and that I have sung their gospel. "

Christa Bruce, Product Manager, Royal Canadian Mint

"As a Canadian of African descent, I am so very honoured to share the stories of Black history in Canada. Our history is rich and it is meaningful. In sharing these stories, I hope to build awareness and encourage others to take the time to learn not only about the hardships, but the contributions and the achievements of Black people in Canada. "

Matthew Porter, Sculptor/Engraver/3D Graphics

"While engraving this coin, I focused my attention on the people because this is their story. I opted for a layered approach by first giving shape to the figures that represent the tens of thousands who risked their lives to find freedom. Other details add to the storytelling—for example, in the sky, a mix of frostings creates a twinkling effect that mimics starlight when you view the coin from different angles. "
