The Orange Sugar Maple
Orange_Maple.jpg The pride and joy of maple syrup producers in Vermont, Ontario and Quebec (but present as far east as Nova Scotia and as far south as the state of Georgia), the Orange Sugar Maple (Acer Saccarum) is recognized around the world as the source of the sweetest, clearest maple syrup. It takes a great deal of work to produce this tree’s sweet, golden bounty: one quart (one liter) of syrup requires boiling down 10 gallons (40 liters) of sap!

A large-leafed, long-lived tree that often tops 115 feet (35 m) in height, the sugar maple can live for 200 years! The shape of its five-lobed leaf is recognizable around the world; a stylized version of its leaf is found at the center of the Canadian maple leaf flag!

Autumn in a forest dominated by sugar maples is an extraordinary sight. Intense rainbows of yellow, orange, red, and purple seem to set the countryside aflame in regions where sugar maples grow. Native American peoples were long attracted to the sugar maple for its savory sap, sweet flowers, and close-grained hardwood.

But the leaves and sap are not the only prized features of the Sugar Maple. Sugar Maple wood is exceptionally hard, making it a material of choice for furniture-makers and producers of hardwood flooring, as well as makers of other notable products, including bowling pins and alley floors, basketball courts, baseball bats, violins, guitars, and drums.

Investment Note
What an opportunity - a one ounce, pure platinum proof coin, featuring an intricately detailed, frosted cameo portrait of a sugar maple leaf! In fact, this is only the ninth one ounce platinum proof that the Royal Canadian Mint has ever offered individually (i.e,, not in a multi-coin set), and it features the ever popular maple leaf design! What's more, the Maple Leaf $300 Platinum Proof has a total mintage of only 250, making it exceedingly rare!

If you need further proof of the investment potential of this beauty, consider the recent value of platinum -  it has recently traded in the $2200 per ounce range! Platinum is the the rarest, hardest to find, mine and refine of all the precious metals, and has a number of non-recoverable uses, so the sky's the limit. Only 250 lucky individuals can ever own one of these gems, so get yours today!
