Why add this 2017 Canada 1 oz. Proof Gold Football-Shaped coin to your collection?
The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) in partnership with ModernCoinMart (MCM) has honored America’s favorite sport in 2017 with the release of a numismatic first! This is a 1 oz. .9999 fine gold coin, struck with cutting-edge minting technology to result in a 3D football shape. It serves as a fine commemorate of the game, as well as a valuable item for any coin collection. It boasts a high face value of $200 and measures 44mm by 26.4mm. Only 550 of these coins have been minted!
What is the football design?
The football theme is completed with an extremely realistic depiction of the ball, complementing the obvious shape. The leather texture and thick white stitching across the top will be familiar to anyone who has thrown a football, and the tell-tale white bands at both ends are iconic. The inscriptions “200 DOLLARS” and “2017” are also present on the upper and lower portions of the design.
The obverse of this coin displays a familiar Canadian design of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Susanna Blunt, this effigy was created back in 2003 and has been present on most Canadian coinage issued since.
