Very interesting to see the coins being made. The day we were there they were making coins for Jamaica. Enjoyed holding the large gold bar - surprisingly very heavy.

Very interesting to see money actually being made. And for more countries than Canada, too. The gift shop is also a good place to add the coin sets for your kids / grandkids as well. Should be a school trip for the older grades.

As far as tours go, this is a pretty good one. Our guide was knowledgeable, albeit a bit brusque, and presented a bundle of information about coin production as we passed by the windows overlooking the factory floor. We definitely walked away understanding and appreciating the business of making coins much more than when we walked in. The Mint is... More

This was my first visit to the mint. We took the guided tour, paid $6 pp (the fee is less if you are above 55yo). Our tour guide was nice and informative. We saw the production floor through the windows. Too bad when we were there some of the production was not in operation because they were in break. They... More

I expected more but the tour was only 45 minutes and pretty informative. I know many native Winnipeggers and none had ever been there. The gift shop could be amped up a bit. The coin maker was cool but not operational. The grounds are very pretty and the building is pretty cool.
