Maple Leaf
The maple leaf is the characteristic leaf of the maple tree, and is the most widely recognized national symbol of Canada. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the settlements located in New France had attained a population of about 18.000. By this time, the maple leaf had been adopted as an emblem by the French Canadians along the Saint Lawrence River. Its popularity with French Canadians continued and was reinforced when, at the inaugural meeting of the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste in 1834, the maple leaf was one of numerous emblems proposed to represent the society. Speaking in its favour, Jacques Viger, the first mayor of Montreal, described the maple as “the king of our forest; ... the symbol of the Canadian people”. The Royal Standard of Canada showing a sprig of three maple leaves as part of the design. The flag of Canada, featuring a stylized maple leaf in the centre.

 
Design

The reverse design by Virginia Boulay radiates light through its exquisite pairing of an engraved design and a brilliant 0.10-ct Canadian diamond. The quintessential symbol of Canadian pride and identity, a majestic maple leaf is painstakingly brought to life by intricate engraving that re-creates its veined lobes in exceptional detail. The large leaf is positioned to the right to create the illusion of an overhead perspective, as though the viewer is looking down towards the base of this Canadian celebration. Circling upward in a motion that conveys lightness, the leaves form a precious snowflake-like nest that cradles and hoists the embedded diamond higher and higher. On the top of the reverse, the inscription: “CANADA” – the issue country. The obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “2018” – the issue date, “D.G. REGINA” and “250 DOLLARS” – the face value.
