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...

really interesting tour of the operations of the mint. Disappointing that no pictures are allowed, but understandable! Had fun lifting the heavy solid gold bar. the manufacturing process for coinage is really fascinating, and the sheer volume overwhelming.

We booked ahead, as advised, to visit the Royal Canadian Mint. The tour guide related interesting facts and dates about the coins. How shiny all those new pennies gleamed! We could hold a bar of gold! It was chained on and the security guard stood watch.

The tour of the mint is truly amazing for those who have an interest in the production of international as well as our own Canadian coins. Although very interesting it is not geared toward the very young--though they are welcome. The gift store offers a great selection of coins, etc. that would make great Canadian souvenirs

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and could be easily heard. Much like the U.S. Mint, it is difficult to really see the money being made, but it was interesting to watch. If possible, call ahead for a reservation time for the tour.

Took our 6 and 8 year old grandchildren and the tour and mint were interesting for a short visit but certainly not a "must do " experience. Tour was well done and lasted approximately 45 mins. Nice gift shop to purchase special coins.

Our tour guide did a very nice job - if I were to go again I would try to go during the week so we could have seen the machinery running. It was very interesting.

Very interesting tour of how coins are made. Liked the gift store as well as the tour. This tour takes less than an hour and is quite reasonable in price as well.
