Interesting and informative. Tour is about 45 min and guide was great. Encouraged questions and kept things moving. Definitely call and make reservation. We were fortunate to get in last minute but some didn't and tours are about 1.5 hr apart. Certainly worth seeing

Did you know that all the Canadian change is made here as well as coins etc for about 75 other countries. Tour was most interesting covering all aspects of the production....tour guide well informed and knowledgeable. Worth doing.

My wife and I took the 45 minute tour of the Mint recently and were very pleased that we did. We got there a bit late for a tour that had left 5 minutes earlier and they let us join that tour which we were thankful for. There is a very reasonable admission charge for the tour. This mint makes... More

From the time we sighted the stunning building, we knew we were in for a different type of tour. Our tour guide, Brittainy, certainly knew her stuff and kept her cool.(how our coins are made,history,materials used,etc.) In the gift shop one can easily ring up a bill over one hundred dollars in high quality merchandise, but also spend under twenty-five...

First of all, the building exterior and grounds themselves are very impressive and easy to walk and photograph. You drive down a driveway lined with all the flags of the nations that this facility creates money for. The building interior though is a little bland. Small courtyard with water features and a coin gift shop which takes up about 1/3... More

My niece and I visited here when we were in Winnipeg. I highly recommend the tour as there really isn't anything else to do there. The price for the tour was reasonable ($6 for adults, $3 for youth) and the tour guide was very knowledgable.

This was a great tour for the family which included a detailed description of the process in which coins are minted. The tour guide that we had did a great job interacting with the many children on the tour and still managing to make this interesting for the adults as well. We were surprised to learn that the Canadian Mint... More

We were not able to see the actual production of the coins coz the machines that time were off because there were no working employees. However, we still enjoyed the tour. Being able to hold the actual gold bar was one of the highlight for the kids.

If you're a coin collector or just like to view the new and interesting coins available, then definitely check out the Royal Canadian Mint! Offers a boutique where you can browse the newly minted coins as well as take a tour of the facility (for a nominal charge of course!). Even if you don't collect coins you probably won't leave...
