  • Very cool experience! I was not aware that Canada produced coin currency for 80 other countries! Very informative and fun to see the process. Also it’s pretty cool to see about 24 million dollars worth of gold sitting 20 feet from you!

  • Went on the tour around the Mint, and our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and keen to answer questions, and also with a loud clear voice so that everyone could hear her. The process is clearly explained, and during the working week you can view people through windows carrying out various stages. The gift shop has interesting things to buy, and you can pose whilst you try to lift a genuine gold bar. Great value too!

  • A great stop to get out of the summer heat during your visit to Ottawa. We arrived at 2:10 and were able to get tickets to the 3:15 tour. Tour is well worth seeing, as otherwise you only have access to the gift shop. The tour was a great value, 45 minutes for about $9 for two adults. Our guide was well rehearsed and added a personal touch to our tour. It was great to learn about the Mint. I am now interested in touring the Winnipeg Mint as well.

  • There is a lot to learn about our Canadian Mint. This is the best place to learn. The tour is the best part. The tour guides are doing a wonderful job keeping the visitors engaged. They are very enthusiastic and funny. Even the kids loved the tour and all the information they provided excited them. A sample story we heard during the tour: Did you know Australia and Canada mint coins for other countries for a fees? So they are competitors. And once, Australia came to Canada for minting their coin. Guess why? They were too busy minting coins for other countries, they couldn't mint their own! The information about why the queen or king's face is either facing left or right was good to know.

  • Great visit! As noted by others the guided tour is recommended. We called for reservations but after getting bounced a few times got to voice mail. We showed up at the Mint and had no problem getting on the next tour of the day. The person was knowledgeable and funny. The whole family enjoyed it. Great if you are a coin collector. We got some glow in the dark coins!
