Royal Canadian Mint - Review
Unlike its counterpart in Ottawa, which is known to produce world class commemorative coins, the Royal Canadian Mint of Winnipeg produces currency that is used in everyday transaction. Producing coins used within Canada and worldwide as well since 1976, it’s claimed that every fourth person around the world carries a Winnipeg’s mint.
The best way to see the Mint is through a tour that is conducted on an hourly basis. The art of making money is shown to you in detail- and it’s not as easy as you think it is.Make sure to pick up a souvenir on your way out.

Royal Canadian Mint, Winnipeg Reviews
An "Interesting Triangular Building"-- doing "Interesting things". Following a lengthy and complicated set of "political discussions" it was decided to locate the new Mint (the existing Mint in Ottawa was antiquated and too small). An "added bonus" associated with the new building was that it could more economically source raw materials from Alberta vs the imported materials that were previously being used. The new Mint was also very efficient-- as is evidenced by their supplying minted coinage for seventy (70) countries!! Your memories of Winnipeg will be enriched by a visit to this Mint!! I hope that this Review has been helpful!
Well worth the trip. Interesting guided tour. Lots of facts about coins and money you would never guess. Try lifting an actual bar of real gold, no kidding. The gift shop has some out of this world coins for sale. Oh and they range in price from a few dollars to Thousands.
I enjoyed the tour of the mint. The tour guide was wonderful. From learning about the architecture of the building to making money for so many countries; They recycle most of the products used in the process.
Great experience to see all the equipment used to mint all the circulation coins. Good place for currency enthusiasts. There are also free self guided tours and paid guided tours one can take around their facility. I would recommend to visit during weekdays as you can see the machinery running.they also have a small shop where you can buy limited edition coins and souvenirs.
The tour is inexpensive, informative, and not too long. We thoroughly enjoyed it with our kids who are 9 and 11. Also, the gift shop has some lovely items. The staff we're extremely helpful. Phone ahead to make a reservation for the tour and save yourself some time.
