Design:

Designed by Steve Hepburn, your coin features a colourful depiction of a young family enjoying a sugar bush experience in early spring. Tin buckets collect the sap from the tapped maple trees in the foreground. A winding path leads back to the sugar shack, where syrup is made in a more traditional way, by boiling the sap in a large kettle hanging over a roaring fire. The image is framed by stylized icons that represent popular outdoor activities and sights in Canada: (clockwise from top) Niagara Falls; a Christmas tree; a rodeo; wine tasting; dogsledding; folk music; cherry blossoms; maple syrup tasting; whale watching; tulips; coastal drives; and the aurora borealis. The obverse features the year “2019” and face value “3 DOLLARS”, and the framed effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Most Acer trees will do.
    While the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) is the top choice for producing high-quality maple syrup, you can make sweet syrup from the sap of other maple trees—even a birch tree. Keep in mind that it takes about 40 litres of maple sap to make one litre of maple syrup.
  • Canada’s Maple Belt stretches from Manitoba to Nova Scotia.
    The top maple syrup producer: the province of Quebec, which produces the bulk of this nation’s total supply.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
