This is surprisingly good!

My expectation was that we would just walk around an exterior glass catwalk to see how coins are made, and read boring displays, but this is not the case at all. There is an... read more

This tour of the Royal Canadian Mint was excellent and very informative. We got to hold a gold bar worth approximately $745,000. Well worth the inexpensive admission.

When we entered the Royal Canadian Mint, we saw a lot of coins made of silver and gold. They were quite expensive. The golden bars were quite heavy! Wow! We walked in hallways, where windows showed us how they manufactured coins. All employees were searched vigorously when they left their work. It makes sense too! Some specialized on 5 cents,...

My expectation was that we would just walk around an exterior glass catwalk to see how coins are made, and read boring displays, but this is not the case at all. There is an entrance fee for the tour, and in our case we had one main guide plus 2-3 other ones each of whom gave the dialogue. Maybe they... More

The Mint isn't for everyone, but if you're in the area, or a numismatist, then it's for you. The tour is cheap ($6 for an adult) and lasts about 45 minutes. If the tour isn't for you, you can do the self guided tour down the same single hallway that the guided tour is on, but you'll have to rely... More
