Did You Know? 

  • The oldest and one of the largest gold refineries in the Western Hemisphere is located at the Mint in Ottawa.
  •  The Mint produces coins for such places as the Czech Republic and Zambia.
  •  Every one of the collector coins produced in Ottawa is inspected at the press to ensure premium quality. 
  • Canadians call their one dollar coin a "loonie" because it has an image of a loon (a bird) on it. What do they call their two-dollar coin? A 'twoonie'. 
  • The gold Maple Leaf Coin -- 99.99% pure. The Royal Canadian Mint was the first to refine gold to this level of purity for commercial distribution, establishing a new international gold standard. 

Canada's Money Maker 

Although the Royal Canadian Mint was originally established to produce only Canadian coins, its reputation for excellent quality has led to commissions from around the world. 


The initial work in the minting process, design and engraving occurs at the Ottawa plant under the supervision of the Master Engraver. Collector coins, medallions, medals and Maple Leaf bullion coins are produced in Ottawa, while circulation coins, tokens and trade dollars are minted in Winnipeg. 

Visitors can follow the steps of the minting process on a tour of the facilities in Ottawa.
