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 Walter Ott’s now-iconic sugar maple leaf design, unchanged since the first Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin was issued in 1988. Black rhodium plating fills the field and enhances the natural shine of the coin’s silver surface, which is only visible on the engraved relief. All around the reverse, the inscriptions: “CANADA” - the issuing country, “9999 FINE SILVER” - the fineness of the Silver and “2 OZ ARGENT PUR” - the weight of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” - the name of the Queen, “2019” - the year of issue and “10 DOLLARS” - the face value.
