Best Answer

The type of maple leaf that is on the Canadian penny is a Sugar Maple leaf.

While this is commonly excepted, it is not a maple at all. Maple leaves grow in paired opposite attachment along the stem, the penny has a two leaves attached individually. While the original artist may have thought it was a maple it is probably a London Plane Tree. I am referencing my university botany instructor on this one, but I verified this with phylotaxic diagrams.
