The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 and its is housed in a modern building in central Winnipeg, Manitoba.
This is the producer of all of the Canada’s circulation coins, manufacturing circulation coins on behalf of other nations. One can get to see gold, silver, palladium and platinum coins here whilst on a guided tour to the place.
This place even offers gold and silver refinery along with assay services. Locals and tourists visit this modern building to know more about the initiative grassroots of this place services.
A guided tour takes you through all the stages of coin production. At the end of the tour, you can see a genuine 1kg (I think) gold bar. Forget about taking it home - it's very securely chained to its... more stand.
