If you can, do the visit during weekdays. You will see some production. We realy appreciate our visit.

Interesting facts but wished we had been informed that they do not mint Canadian money there. Would have been more interesting if the facility was in production mode - ticket booth should have production schedule for visitors.

This is where I buy my Goddaugther's yearly gift. I started buying the annual silver dollar to commemorate her birthday. The silver dollar comes out in February.

The building is cool on the outside but the tour on the inside is a bit of a yawner, they only make specialty coins here so if your a collector you may be impressed. The gift shop was kind of neat, lots of stairs in this place. I wanted out after 10 minutes but your sort of stuck with the goup, you cant wander around like other places.
