When in Denver, a must visit is the highlight of the Skyline – Golden domed Colorado State Capitol! Originally, it was made of Copper but due to harsh weather, it was decided to give it a makeover and was covered with 200 ounces of gold. Multiple applications of gold leaf was required to give its present shine and regal look!
