Nicodemus National Historic Site Collectible Token
Our national park collectible tokens are likely our most popular collectible item. They don't cost much, and they are the perfect item to mark your journeys to parks far and wide. Each coin is crafted from solid metal with park specific engravings on either side. The front of this token features an image of a sheaf of wheat along with the park unit's name. The reverse depicts a farmer at work plowing his wheat field. Formerly enslaved African Americans left Kentucky at the end of the of post-Civil War Reconstruction period to experience freedom in the "Promised Land" of Kansas. Nicodemus represents the involvement of African Americans in the westward expansion and settlement of the Great Plains. It is the oldest and only remaining Black settlement west of the Mississippi River. The back of the token features an image of that main dunefield.
