Since 1976, every Canadian circulating coin and coins for other countries have been produced in this massive facility. You can join a comprehensive guided tour of the facility and its minting process.
The Museum has a boutique.
Guided tours (Eng/Fr) from Monday to Sunday from 9:00 am to 4:00 PM
Highly recommend. Was here in 2013.
Bring a couple of loonies becuase in the front waiting area there is a machine to strike your own token! The tour was informative, got to see how coins were made. The part of the tour about coloured coins was particularly interesting. Tour guide was nice. Boutique had a great selection. Interesting displays around the facility.
If you are in the area check it out!
Nice tour. You get to see the machines running and people working on the floor. No cameras allowed on the tour but I am going to try and bring binoculars next time. Would recommend to anyone.
