Maple Syrup
Maple syrup is a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees, although it can also be made from other maple species. In cold climates, these trees store starch in their trunks and roots before winter; the starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap in late winter and early spring. Maple trees are tapped by drilling holes into their trunks and collecting the exuded sap, which is processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup. 
Maple syrup was first collected and used by the indigenous peoples of North America, and the practice was adopted by European settlers, who gradually refined production methods. Technological improvements in the 1970s further refined syrup processing. The Canadian province of Quebec is by far the largest producer, responsible for 70 percent of the world's output; Canadian exports of maple syrup in 2016 were C$ 487 million (about US$ 360 million), with Quebec accounting for some 90 percent of this total.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a wonderful scene of maple syrup harvesting surrounded by some symbols of Canadian folklore. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: "CANADA" - the issuing country. The starboard side of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” - the Queen's name, “2019” - the date of issue, “D.G.REGINA” - Dei Gratia Regina and “3 DOLLARS” - the face value.
