Royal Mint

Join us for a guided tour of the Royal Canadian Mint’s headquarters to learn how coins are made. The Ottawa facility produces hand-crafted collector and commemorative coins, gold bullion coins, medals and medallions. This is where the master tooling is done to create the dies that strike coin designs for both circulation and commemorative issues.
