The latest in an annual series! Continue or start your collection! Order today!

Canada’s arboreal emblem, the maple (Acer), is more diverse than the single leaf that adorns our flag. In fact, the official symbol encompasses ten different maple species, with at least one species found in every province—a fact that makes the maple leaf a natural icon for this vast nation. The 2019 edition of our annual maple celebration highlights the beauty of the red maple, Acer rubrum. The brilliant relief adds a splash of summer sunshine to the reverse, where even the smallest engraved detail shines bright against the lined/matte background.

Design:

Designed by Pierre Leduc, your coin showcases the peak summer foliage of the red maple (Acer rubrum) tree. Three leaves are shown in an opposite arrangement that fills much of the field. The natural positioning allows for a limited view of the long petioles that secure the two furthest leaves to the twig. Fine engraving stands in for the veins that run through each leaf’s palmate lobes, which are separated by “V”-shaped notches. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • It is found throughout the east, from north to south
    Acer rubrum is one of the most common maple species in eastern North America, where it grows from Newfoundland and Labrador to Florida.
  • It lives up to its rubrum (red) name
    Named for the colour of its twigs, buds and flowers in the spring, the red maple changes from green to a fiery red in the fall… and sometimes gold, too. The leaves are slightly smaller than those of the sugar maple, with deeper “V” notches that separate the lobes.
  • How sweet it is
    While the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) is the top choice for maple syrup producers, the red maple’s sap is also used commercially and its sapwood is prized by the lumber industry.
