There are few things more beautiful than the kaleidoscope of colors you see in the autumn months in North America. Canopies of green turn over time to brilliant arrays of yellow, orange, and red.

The maple tree is the official arboreal emblem of the nation of Canada. So popular is this tree, that its signature maple leaf features on the national bullion coin program, the Canadian Maple Leaf, and appears at the dead center of the national flag.
Each autumn as the temperatures dip and children return to school, beautiful arrays of yellow, orange, and red colors take over the trees of Canada. That beauty is captured brilliantly on these 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Gold Maple Canopy Kaleidoscope of Color coins. Colorized finishes on the reverse immerse you in the full beauty of fall.
The reverse side of each coin offers an immersive viewing standpoint, as Emily Damstras design puts you at the base of a tall maple tree looking up to its canopy with its collection of red, orange, and yellow leaves. Texturized finishes give the trunk a real-life look, while yellow and red leaves drop softly from the canopy above.
On the obverse is the familiar portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy is captured in right-profile relief, and was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. It includes engravings of Her Majestys name and the phrase D.G. Regina.
These 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Gold Maple Canopy Kaleidoscope of Color coins ship inside of protective maroon clamshells with a black beauty box. This is the traditional display box for RCM proof products.
Headquartered in Ottawa, the Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of the nation of Canada. Its Ottawa facility stood as the only minting location in the country from its founding in 1908 until the 1980s, when a second facility opened in Winnipeg.
