About the Royal Canadian Mint

Over the past 105 years, the Royal Canadian Mint has emerged as a global leader in minting.  A few of its internationally-renowned  "firsts" include developing a revolutionary coin-plating process, producing the world's thinnest bi-metallic coin, the purest 99.999% bullion gold coin and first coloured circulation coin in the world.

Established in 1976, the Winnipeg Mint is a high-tech, high-volume manufacturing facility where Canada's circulation coinage is produced, as well as coins for countries around the world.
