Orange_Maple.jpgAn Original Work of Art
A sugar maple leaf (Acer saccharum) provides a fitting and uniquely shaped canvas for this celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Silver Maple Leaf (SML). A fixture on the SML’s design since 1988, the solitary maple leaf is re-created in the upper lobe of the maple leaf-shaped coin, where it is accompanied by the double commemorative dates 1988 and 2018. Finely detailed engraving re-creates the leaf’s venation  for a more natural look to the coin, the leaf, as well as the two smaller-sized versions that flank the legend 30 YEARS ANS. The reverse includes the engraved face value 20 DOLLARS.

The Majestic Maple
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.

Autumn leavesFor 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.
