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 of the coin features the design by Margaret Best by tracing the sugar maple tree and its leaf’s progression through the seasons. A finely engraved maple tree and its mirror image are each divided in half to create quadrants representing spring, summer, fall and winter, helped by artistic touches that stand in for Mother Nature’s ever-changing colour palette. The obverse of the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “20 DOLLARS” – the face value, “2018” – the year of issue, “D.G.REGINA” – Dei Gratia Regina and “CANADA” – the issuing country.
