The fourth and final Maple Leaf Canopy coin is now available.

The Proof Autumn Allure .9999 fine silver $20 coin was released by the Royal Canadian Mint on Aug. 5. 

The coin is enhanced with hues of orange and yellow to bring the beauty of maple’s autumn foliage to light. Texture and tonal detailing in the trunk, branches and leaves emphasize the sense of height and depth in Emily Damstra’s reverse design.

The obverse carries the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

The new coin follows three issues showing maple leaf tree canopies from spring and fall in 2013 and in spring 2014. 

The coin weighs 31.39 grams, measures 38 millimeters in diameter and has a mintage limit of 7,500 pieces.

It retails for $99.95 Canadian.
