Autumn leavesAn Technological Tour-de-Force!
Introducing one of the world’s first maple leaf–shaped gold coins! The coin’s unusual design recreates the familiar shape of a maple leaf - specifically that of a sugar maple (Acer saccharum). Its unique outline showcases some of this maple leaf’s defining characteristics, such as the wavy nature of the leaf’s edge and the curved sinuses between its palmate lobes. Intricate detailing on the reverse gives it a life-like quality, with engraved veins running through the three upper lobes and the two smaller basal lobes.

The coin is the product of an exacting manufacturing process, which includes the use of specialized equipment to shape the dies and the laborious task of controlling the gold to ensure uniform flow and surfacing.  Given the complex edging and meticulously engraved details, the coin’s unique leaf shape is a proud testament to the Royal Canadian Mint’s spirit of innovation and reputation for outstanding craftsmanship!

The Majestic Maple
Orange_Maple.jpg To perch on a moss-covered boulder in the heart of the woods, lean against the broad trunk of a towering sugar maple, and gaze up at the green vault above: this is to experience the Canadian forest at its finest. Idling away a few careless moments in the presence of this wise old species allows us to journey backward in our own memories, to explore a daydreamed future, and to rest in the serenity of the present. The maple canopy connects land and sky, shade and light, tree and tree, human and heavens.

In a land dominated by vast woodlands, it is no surprise that the maple is considered a national treasure and symbol of a people. It has played a key role in Canada’s development as a nation. From the earliest Native Americans to the European explorers, the settlers and, ultimately, those who manage today’s forestry and tourism industries, Canadians have always found the maple to be a beautiful and important resource.

For approximately 200 years, the maple leaf symbol has been associated specifically with Canada and Canadians. In 1965, the maple leaf became the centerpiece of Canada’s most important national emblem - the Canadian flag. On April 25, 1996, the Deputy Registrar of Canada proclaimed the maple tree (genus Acer, representing the 10 species found in Canada) the country’s official arboreal emblem, citing the maple leaf’s historical role as a symbol of national identity, the important part the maple has played in the country’s historical and commercial development, its aesthetic importance to Canadians, and the tree’s role as an important environmentally sustainable economic resource.
