The sugar maple leaf is more than an icon of Canada, it is a well-known species of tree to millions around the world. In its natural form, the sugar maple leaf is native to hardwood forests and can be found in Canada predominantly in the eastern provinces from Nova Scotia west toward Quebec and into parts of Ontario and Manitoba. It is also common to the northern and northeastern United States from Minnesota across the Great Lakes Region to Massachusetts.
Sugar maple leaf trees are best known for two things: syrup and foliage. In the spring months, sugar maple leaf trees are the primary source of syrup for breakfast pastry lovers around the world. In the autumn months, the sugar maple puts on a true display of color with its bright, beautiful foliage altering the landscape in breathtaking fashion.
The obverse of these 2016 $200 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Nature’s Purest Form Coins bears the right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. In this 2003 design from Susanna Blunt, Her Majesty is depicted in the fourth-generation Canadian design with no crown on her head.
