At the start of the 18th century, the settles of New France (modern Canada) had a population of roughly 18,000 people. These early settlers of the North American continent adopted the maple leaf as an emblem of their status as French Canadians, with its use largely confined at the time to the regions along the Saint Lawrence River.

The very first mayor of Montreal, Jacques Viger, described the maple tree as the “king of our forest, the symbol of the Canadian people.” Over the next 200 years it was incorporated into the coat of arms and flags of individual provinces, and by the 20th century had become a symbol for the whole nation, appearing on the badges of Canadian Expeditionary Forces during World War I and the sun helmets of Canadian soldiers as early as the Second Boer War of the 1800s.

For the 150th anniversary of Canada’s federation and independence from British control, the Royal Canadian Mint has micro-laser engraved the number “150” in a recurring pattern on the background field of the coin’s obverse and reverse side. The maple leaf shape on the reverse forms a light-refracting patter that enhances the visual beauty and shine of these coins.

On the reverse of the 2017 2 oz Proof Silver Canadian Canada 150 Iconic Maple Leaf coin you’ll find that familiar sugar maple leaf design on all Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins. The tiny engravings of 150 are visible, appearing almost as recurring dots rather than actual text across the background field.

The obverse of all these coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty always appears on Canadian coinage, with this latest design coming from Susanna Blunt in 2003 and in use on most coin programs dating to the 2004 issue year.
