SHADE AND SHELTER
In Canada, the Silver Maple occurs naturally in parts of New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario, and is planed as an urban and street tree in many other areas of the country. Silver Maple is the first maple tree to bloom in North America, beginning as early as late February and continuing until May. Beautiful in autumn when its leaves turn a lovely muted yellow, in Spring the Silver Maple is known for its heavy seed fall, having one of the maple’s largest annual seed crops.
Designed by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Stan Witten, the coin depicts a cluster of the Silver Maple’s leavers fluttering in an autumn breeze.
The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon display case with an insert, which houses the coin and is protected by a black beauty box.
