  • Very cool place to tour. The tour is not free; it costs a little money, and essentially is just a walk up and down a hall as you cannot go into the spaces that they are making the coins. They explain the production and history of the Canadian press, and while it's unfortunate that you can't go near the machinery or anything, it is still very informative and cool. The tour also didn't take very long, but in being so fast paced it might be difficult for people with limited ability to keep up, as I don't remember there being much available for seating or mobility aids.

  • Took the guided tour and the young man with us was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. This being the center of our coin production not only for our country but other lands as well. Very interesting with a store to add to your collection.

  • Interesting Place to visit. Beautiful and interesting architecture with many windows and plenty light inside the structure. The production is in spacious and rather airy parts of the building and can be watched via huge windows inside the building. Photographie is forbidden inside and during the guided tour. Visit is recommended.

  • 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.

  • Fascinating place. Tours are available to see the process of minting coins and a well stocked boutique to purchase exceptional coins.
