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.

Celebrating 25 Years of The Royal Canadian Mint’s World-Renowned Silver Maple Leaf
When the Royal Canadian Mint introduced its first Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin in 1988, the coin’s beauty and purity made it an instant success. Since that first release, the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin has been minted annually with one troy ounce (31.1 grams) of 9999 fine silver and a face value of 5 Dollars - the highest face value on the market for any comparable silver bullion coin.

In addition to its metal weight, purity, and face value, the coin’s reverse design has consistently featured the emblematic maple leaf – a Canadian icon that remains a favourite for collectors around the world. This coin celebrates the iconic Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin with an exciting variation on Walter Ott’s traditional maple leaf reverse image for this flagship Royal Canadian Mint product. In addition, the obverse features the “tiara portrait” effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from the 1988 original, as well as the commemorative year “1988” and “2013.”

This $50 coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a weight of 156.05 grams and a diameter of 65 millimetres. This iconic reverse designed by Canadian artist Arnold Nogy depicts two small sugar maple leaves overlapping the bottom lobes of one large sugar maple leaf. The obverse shows an embossed face value of 50 dollars, the commemorative years “1988” and “2013,” the words “ELIZABETH II,” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin, from the coin’s first release in 1988.
