The Royal Canadian Mint
The Royal Canadian Mint is a Canadian Crown corporation producing all of Canada’s circulation coins. The Royal Canadian Mint offers several services to businesses within Canada as well as foreign governments. The Mint is a leader in the industry thanks to its high standards of outsourced coin production, assay, state-of-the-art refinery and more.
This Mint is also responsible for manufacturing circulation coins for foreign countries. The Mint also manufacturers and designs precious metals and base metal collector coins; silver, gold, palladium and platinum bullion coins, as well as medallions and tokens. Additionally, the Mint is a gold and silver refinery and offers assay services in Canada. The Mint had the honour of being named one of Canada’s ‘Top 100 Employers’ by MediaCorp Canada Inc. for four years in a row (2007-2010).
In its early days, the Mint produced gold Sovereigns, Canadians coins and refined gold, going so far as to produce gun parts for Britain during World War I. Today the Mint concentrates mainly on circulation coins for Canada and beyond. There is a facility in Winnipeg that produces circulation coins, while a second facility in Ottawa produces numismatic products.
The Royal Canadian Mint boasts boutiques in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver where customers can view the newest collections of gold and silver coins. Guided, interactive tours featuring displays and behind-the-scenes looks at the Mint's facilities are run in Ottawa and Winnipeg.
