The boreal woodland caribou is a subspecies of reindeer living on the North American continent. The creatures historically had a range that covered Canada from coast to coast and included regions of the United States from New England to Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Idaho, and Wyoming. Today, the caribou are still found across Canada, but no longer exist in New England, Michigan, Wisconsin, or Minnesota. Small numbers can still be found in Idaho and Wyoming.
On the obverse of 2020 1/4 oz Gold Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proofs, you will find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this is the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty. The design depicts the Queen in right-profile relief without a crown on her head.
The reverse face of 2020 Gold Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proofs comes with the design of a woodland caribou. The image is a right-profile image of the caribou with its neck and head visible. The antlers of the animal dominate much of the design field. You will also find the “DM” initials of designer Denis Mayer Jr. on this side of the coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908. It originally operated only the Ottawa Mint until 1980 when the Winnipeg Mint facility was opened to provide greater coining capacity.
